Does SLI work with two different cards?

Recommended Posts

Dear All,

 

I have a GTX 460 (1GB RAM) and have to upgrade my system to use it with P3D2. If will go for a GTX 770 (4GB) or 780 (whatever Santa can carry).

 

Now I wonder if in P3D 2.1 I can make use of my old GTX 460 in SLI (I know LM will implement it in 2.1):

 

Will there be any benefit or do only two identical cards work together?

It has to be the same card types. Like 2 460's or 2 780's.

You can however use the 460 to run physX and the 780 for your output.

 

Also 1 780 is way more powerful than 2 460's, just keep that in mind.

Ah, my question is more like if it makes sense to keep the 460 and use it or to remove it in order to free up the space for a second 770/780 once I can afford it.

Yeah I have two 460 1GB OC in SLI mode with three monitors and it works great with FSX...hopefully it will run smooth on P3D 2.0...

 

Please keep me posted if you decide to get another 460.

At best if it even works the 770/780 would be downclocked to the 460 speed and you would only have 1GB of VRAM to use.

Must be identical type, so 770 or 780 X 2, or 460 X 2.  For the $, 760 X 2 EVGA OC version gives Titan-like performance.  I have this setup and it rocks.
