SUPER Introduction & Cards Used
I started this series with the release of NVIDIA's new GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER, which was the first NVLink-capable SUPER graphics card and I'm now back again with the new RTX 2080 SUPER and some delicious multi-GPU results.
The original tests were simply for a "because why not" factor and that once again applies. I wouldn't necessarily recommend buying two GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER graphics cards and throwing them in NVLink, but I have the hardware here and I'm genuinely interested in the results so why not, right?
I'll be comparing the results against some new entries into the charts too, so we'll look at:
- RTX 2080 Ti NVLink
- RTX 2080 SUPER NVLink
- RTX 2070 SUPER NVLink
- Radeon RX Vega 64 CrossFire
Just like any multi-GPU article there are caveats:
- Don't expect all games to have great scaling (especially at 1080p)
- Don't expect all games to work with multiple graphics cards
- Synthetic tests kick ass to show you the CAPABILITIES, but do not translate into real-world gaming
- 4K in the right game, makes GREAT use of two RTX 2080 SUPER cards
