Should You Buy RTX 2080 Ti NVLink?

This is going to be a hard question, but it's something with an easy answer: no, no you should NOT buy GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics cards in NVLink. Are you crazy? That's $2400... the cost of an entire gaming PC with a single RTX 2080 Ti inside.

But... holy sh*t are two GeForce RTX 2080 Ti cards in NVLink a powerful combo when you have a game that has good to great multi-GPU scaling. An example is Shadow of the Tomb Raider cranking along at 126FPS average on the RTX 2080 Ti NVLink configuration. That is just... I don't even know what to say. We finally have a graphics card combo capable of 4K 120FPS gaming and no one seems to care.

Everyone is crying that there's no RTX games and DLSS available yet, but as I've said since my RTX 2080 Ti review - if you want pure performance, RTX 2080 Ti is the next level. RTX 2080 Ti in NVLink is even better, with some great scaling in games really pushing the limits of what was the previous ceiling.

This is why I don't recommend any multi-GPU system. There are more problems than they're worth, with not many games supporting SLI through to scaling issues and general technical issues. But when it works... holy balls you better be strapped to your seat... because 1440p and 4K games will never run better.
