One GPU vs. two GPUs

Recommended Posts

Will be ordering a new high end PC and planning on using a Nvidia GTX1080Ti.  Wondering what the advantages are of having two GPUs, vs. just one.  

Any comments, or experience using two will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Captain Tom

I ran 2 1080ti's in SLI for a little bit.  Performance was much improved over the single card however:

- I could fry eggs on the top card

- Finding a driver that worked correct was almost impossible.  Had constant sound crackling issues.

- Does not work well with Realight

- SLI does not work well in Xplane 11

- If I undocked a window and dragged it to another monitor SLI would automatically stop working till u restarted P3D.

My advice stay with one card.  A single 1080ti will run P3D fairly well.  I bit the bullet and went with a 2080ti.  Id say I'm getting a little bit better performance compared to the dual 1080ti's with out the headache.
