I have been looking into a quad SLI system but don't want to get 580s to do this, I was wondering if there were any 570 GTXs that support 4-Way SLI? Does anyone know or have a setup like this?

More about : sli 570

The problem is that none of the 570 say they support 4-Way SLI but 580s say they do. I don't want to buy them if i will only be able to get 3-way to work. If they only support 3-way only I would pick a different Motherboard also.

quad sli is a system based on coupling 2 cards together with each card having 2 GPU on it.
Physically u can connect 2 (two-way SLI or quad SLI) or 3 (three-way SLI) cards together but not 4.

So the maximum you can do is hook up 3 of the 570GTX.

Only 480's and 580's can Quad SLI. there really is no point in getting quad ANYTHING since the boost from 3 to 4 is TINY compared to 2 to 3 let alone 1 to 2.

4 way sli won't gives you better performance they are useless go with 2 gtx570 its rock even single 570 can handle every game at maxed out.

No motherboard can support 4 physical graphic cards together in SLI (though it is possible to attach them to the slot only). Unless some manufacturer releases two 570 GTX GPUs in a single card, your idea is in vain.

Read the Latest article on the site http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/fulmo-gt-thor-v2-vh... they were running quad SLI with 4 cards.

You would be better off going with 1 GTX590 over 4 GTX 570's. It would be a lot cheaper and more cost effective.

3-way GTX 570 2.5GB would give you MONSTROUS performance, thats they way i would go if i had a lot of money.

well dual 590s has less VRAM and scales much worse, probably would be a big pain because 4-way/quad sli always has some microstuttering and other issues.

Lol, my question is - why would you want to?

Unless you have a multi monitor setup with massive res. Then there's no point; overkill!

I'm guessing you have a single monitor setup. So there's no point, just stick with one card, maybe even two if you want the extra performance.

By the time you use the full performance of even three cards. There will be something else out there that you'll want!

+1 to djentleman. What are you using the rig for??? How many monitors and at what resolution?

Indeed, other than bragging rights, it is just one of those things that would be a pain to set up and maintain, and as no software really takes advantage of it nothing will really work quite right. Much better off with 2 or 3 570's, or waiting a year or 2 for technology to catch up with your dreams.

The setup would be for a 3D surround setup at 1920X1080. I did lookup specs for a 3-way setup and the gain is ok. There really is not a lot of data or charts for a Quad setup though.

i'm sorry but a single gtx 570 will not run any game maxed out unless you are running a low res. anytime someone says blank blank card will run any game maxed out. take it with a grain of salt. if you are running a higher res it takes more gpu power. back the title of this thread. YES, 570's can do 4-way sli. (looks over at pc i'm typing on and see's 4 570's). non of them say they support 4 way but they do. even with 4 570's in sli OC'd to 900 each i can't max out ever game at a res of 5760x1080(3 1920x1080 monitors)
