NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Launches Worldwide – International Pricing & SLI Bridge Compatibility Guide

NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1080 is now available for purchase as both NVIDIA’s own GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition and through partner manufacturers. VRFocus has the full international pricing for both editions of this new graphics card, as well as important information regarding SLI bridges direct from NVIDIA.

Important Information on SLI Bridges

Information supplied by NVIDIA: Enthusiast GeForce cards traditionally came with 2 SLI interfaces per card. Those were required for 3- and 4-way SLI operation. Beginning with NVIDIA Pascal GPUs, the two interfaces are now linked together to improve bandwidth between GPUs. This new dual-link SLI mode allows both SLI interfaces to be used in tandem to feed one Hi-res display or multiple displays for NVIDIA Surround.

Dual-link SLI mode is supported with a new SLI Bridge called SLI HB. The bridge facilitates high-speed data transfer between GPUs, connecting both SLI interfaces, and is the best way to achieve full SLI clock speeds with GeForce GTX 1080 GPUs running in SLI (NOTE: The GeForce GTX 1080 is also compatible with legacy SLI bridges; however, the GPU will be limited to the maximum speed of the bridge being used).

The GeForce GTX 1080’s new SLI subsystem provides more than double the bandwidth between GPUs compared to the SLI interface used on prior generation GeForce GTX GPUs. This is particularly important for high resolutions like 4K and 5K and surround.

Since the GeForce GTX 1080 now supports different types of bridges, it is important to understand which bridges work best for the intended use case. Below is a simple table highlighting recommend configurations:
