Well according to Nvidia, using a 3-way SLI Bridge with a 2-way setup will have double the data transfer speeds between the two GPU's versus the 2-way SLI Bridge. Quoted Directly from Nvidia Customer Care
" Hello Corey,
Thank you for contacting NVIDIA Customer Care.
This is Matiuj and I will be assisting you with your query. I understand from your email that you would like to know if you can use 3-way SLI Bridge with a 2-way setup.
Yes, you can use 3-way SLI Bridge with a 2-way setup, its compatible. You will get double the data transfer speeds between the two GPU's.
Please feel free to contact us, if you have any further questions.
yea i didnt really believe them either, i just wanted to share with the community. I agree that there is no performance increase, the only reason im using it is because a) like you said, it looks better, and b) because i feel it is a more stable way to make sure the video cards dont move around. thank you though for the input on your personal experience between the 3-way and 2-way sli bridge
looks better? wtf? a bit hanging off the end of the second card just... hanging there?
what would happen if you used two 2 way SLI bridges though?

i think they mean a three way bridge will work just as a two way bridge does and you will get double transfer speeds from the sli which is the case from using the two way bridge for sli... makes no difference jus looks worse
