    What he failed to mention is that right now, AMD's 5700s abandon multi GPU altogether, and only new Nvidia GPUs capable are the 2070 'Super' and above.

    So if market share is behind the decreasing support, restricting it to dual stupid-expensive-for-one-card-already RTX setups is just quickening the death spiral.

    As someone who has zero experience with sli, if you are looking to use a Eurocom Sky x9c with a 1440p 120hz screen, i9, and 2080 in sli, can you just shut off the other gpu until you want to use it to save on power/electricity?

    You should just take out the second 2080 and sell it, because that “SLI” does not work in games.

    What he said about dual rtx ^^^

    And no, it's powered constantly, but is pretty minor considering the general power consumption of the unit which is high no matter what, my 2nd 1080 reports a 5-6W draw at idle
