They helped to build my brother a computer based on the ASRock P55 Extreme
, CPU i3 and two graphics cards Palit GeForce GTS 250
Included with the motherboard is SLI-bridge, a piece of iron to connect graphics cards in SLI on the idea. But on the cards, despite the fact that they are SLI-ready, connectors under it was not.
After installing the second motherboard started up fine without the bridge (in nVidia-based SLI involved) and the performance of the video subsystem has grown considerably. BUT!
But on the forums and in the old materials as much as overclockers for 2005, the first year it is alleged that without the SLI bridge bunch works too, but begins to significantly lose performance as far back as 6600GT.
So tell me, please — on modern systems iron SLI-brigde gives a boost in performance or not? If you give, then what?
Links to the tests with and without a piece of metal (this year) also would have helped to calm down.
