Is it possible to do tri sli with a gtx 585 and another gtx 560?

is it? would be pretty intense lol....to make it tri sli

**just to clarify** a gtx 585 is TWO GTX 560s on a single pcb, is it possible, to get a 3rd gtx 560 and corssfire, a gtx 585 with a gtx 560..if you don't know what gtx 585 cards are..you probably shouldn't be giving advice on nvidia cards lol

.......i obviously know you can only sli two identical cards.....i say 3-way sli...did no one catch on to that....what i'm asking is it possible to make a 560 ti 3-way sli using this configuration.......as the 585 is a dual gpu card....

  1. Not sure sure what a "gtx 585" is but you can only SLI the same type of cards, so no shoving in assorted graphics cards like 560 + "gtx 585"'s or GTX 570 + GTX 580, unless you are planning to use the 560 as a physx card... which would be overkill
  2. exactly what is a gtx 585? the closest thing to that is a gtx 590 which is a dual GF110 graphics card. what shotgunz said was absolutely correct - you can only SLi with the same graphics core. The 500 series do not scale as well as the 600 series though. Keep that in mind though.

    It is two 560 ti's on one card

    Usually 2 560Ti's on one is called the 2WIN card.

  5. In that case I think it would be dual sli. However, you cannot sli two different cards (usually, a few exceptions). What you can do is dedicate the weaker card to physx while running both, assuming your mobo and PSU can handle the load.
  6. interesting - thanks for the enlightment - wow I'm supprised people bill the 590 as the only 500 series dual gpu solution. Makes sense to me - two gtx 560Ti will beat one 580 but not the 590 and hence the unofficial 585 moniker...

    actually you can SLi a gtx 560Ti 2Win with another single card 560Ti

    took this from a newegg review of the gtx 560Ti 2win (gtx 585) - you should be able to locate it somewhere in the first page of reviews

    Manufacturer Response:
    Hello,

    It is true you cannot run these in Quad SLI. It is a limitation of the driver. Since the card is a dual GPU card you can however run it in 2-way SLI with a single card. If you ever have questions on our products and their capabilities prior to purchasing a card please call our 24/7 pre-sales line (888)-881-3842

    Thought this might enlighten the discussion a bit.

    And technically, you should be able to 3-way SLI those. There's no real answer floating around on the internet, but its worth a shot.

    Probably has to do with your attitude toward people who try to help you, since you asked a question that doesn't make sense as there is no such thing as a GTX 585. If you don't know anything about nvidia cards and think there is a 585 you probably shouldn't be critizing people who ask what you're talking about. especially since you said you want to crossfire them

    If you'd like to ditch the attitude and ask a question about a real product, say the EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2Win, maybe someone will help you.

    Yes you can. yes its a stupid thing to due since it has all the problems of a dual GPU card and actual trisli is cheaper

    i never said crossfire, crossfire is for amd...obv..i got mad, and if your realized, i edited that a few hours after i posted the question, because people kept giving me dumb answers such as what is a gtx 585? you can only crossfire 2 similar gpus etc, it's hard to keep cool when people keep replying that have no idea what they are talking about, and yes it is considered the gtx 585.....oh and also, you cannot do tri-sli with gtx 560s
