3DMark is such a great test for multi-GPU setups, with our two ASUS GeForce GTX 980 Matrix Platinum cards in SLI being no disappointment whatsoever. We have some great SLI scaling here at 1080p with the graphics score on the single card at 14,460, while the second card pumps that up to 22,833.


At 2560x1440, we have 6,776 on the single card, while SLI opens that up all the way to 11,945. At 4K, we have the single Matrix Platinum scoring 3,282, while the second card provides a much higher score of 6,072.


Moving over to Heaven at 1080p, the single GTX 980 Matrix Platinum was capable of 106FPS average, but with the second card, we see this increase up to 157FPS average, an increase of 48%. At 1440p, the single card scores 64FPS average, but in SLI, we have an improvement of 67%, with 107FPS average.


Cranking our cards up to 3840x2160, we see Heaven squeezing all it can from our single Matrix Platinum with 26FPS, while the second card in SLI pushes a much bigger 47FPS, representing an increase of 80%.
