EVGA Experiments With 4-Way Fermi GTX 480 SLI

The GeForce GTX 480 is the fastest single-GPU solution available right now; but if that's not enough speed for you, then how about putting four of them together?

PC maker CyberPower posted on its Facebook page showing an EVGA setup with four GeForce GTX 480s in a very impressive 4-way SLI setup. According to Techpowerup, EVGA tested the cards on a X58 Classified 4-way SLI motherboard with a special SLI bridge that makes it all possible.

Sadly, no benchmark results yet, but with such a graphical monster on EVGA's hands, we don't imagine details to be secret for very long.

    Never mind the benchs, what are the temps?!?!? That thing doesn't even look like it's water cooled even....

    I guess your really don't need to run these full load, so the temps should not raise too much if the case has enough positive air flow. Noise could be an issue though.
  • And if Nvidia makes a dual GPU card of these (on par with the 5970) think of those in a 4-way SLI. Or should I say, 8 way.

    Now that, could fry an egg...

    I'm pretty sure that isn't possible, as, as far as I know quad sli is as high as sli goes.

    having 4 of them tightly packed like that temps will be an issue. probably need an extra fan(s) on them.
