    I stopped updating the NVIDIA video card on my main gaming computer several years ago after one of their "updates" made GTA V unplayable on 3D vision, and a few months after that, they simply stopped supporting 3D vision. Meanwhile I have a 3D monitor and a bunch of games i can no longer go back to playing in 2D because 3D vision is so much better.

    still watching, but wanted to pop in and say a couple of things. 1. Even games that don't really "support" SLI, you can usually use Google and find another SLI profile that works and use NVIDIA-inspector to turn on SLI. 2. I really think NVIDIA is shooting themselves in the foot with SO many things they are doing. While there may not be a lot of people using SLI, I would think that there are enough of them to make a pretty big difference in sales. A single RTX 3080 is still not powerful enough to play all existing AAA titles in 4K and remain above 60fps. If they can't keep up with existing titles, there is no way they will be able to with future titles. 3. So many other bad business decisions, like trying to strong arm TSMC, to pushing proprietary things that look great, but their cards aren't powerful enough to do it, especially on a single card.

    He's actually using an MSI Godlike Z390 (and an older CPU) not Z490. The newest godlike only has 3 PCIE x16 slots instead of 4. I think that means the current top tier CPU and top tier MBO combo would actually have these two 3090s touching instead of having the one slot spacing between

    So this is the one time where you didn't feel the need to benchmark content creation? Would have really liked to see how this affects (for example) render times in Blender. Especially because this is where i still see a legitimate use case for SLI: gaming rig/ workstation hybrid machines where you don't quite have the cash to go for quadro cards. SLI might be pointless feature for gaming right now but that's not the only thing one can use a Geforce card for. Being one of the fortunate few to have a 3090 SLI setup and not even showing results seems like a real wasted opportunity.
