Has anyone seen any data on 2011 vs 1155 platforms with regard to multi GPU setups? I've been thinking about running SLI when kepler cards are released but I don't want to get short changed performance wise due to PCIe bottlenecks with my current 1155 board.

Got to be kidding me, they have 2011 pins now!! How many more pins can they really fit in a socket to approach the limit, I wonder?

Here's a review on i7 3930k using X79 platform. They did comparison to other CPUs including at least one LGA 1155 CPU.

I wouldn't expect it to make much difference with a single graphics card.

Sandy Bridge only has 16 PCIe 2.0 Lanes available for connecting a GPU, Sandy Bridge-E has 40... I guess the real question is how long will it be before GPUs require so much bandwidth that Sandy Bridge can no longer effectively feed more than one GPU?

Ivy Bridge ( 1155 ) is coming. I would wait a while longer.

Why do you want to run SLI instead of a single card?

Then get Socket 2011, a new mainboard, then do it.

+1

why would you settle for a mid range platform if you spend the money for not one but two hi-end video cards?

2011, don't short change your self. get the real deal

You can either be part of the problem or be part of the solution.

Here's something that's unexpectedly happened with the new Nvid R300 (301.10whql) Drivers for the GTX600's.... the Nvid driver, slows the PCI-E from 3.0 to 2.0 on the 2011 SKTS (X79) Chipsets. Once this driver has been updated, then you should expect PCI-E 3.0 speeds. Here's where I found the news..

http://www.maximumpc.com/article/news/whql-certified_gtx_680_d..._20_speeds

I could buy this card now, but seeing as they are entry level, and although faster than the AMD 7970 Cards, Kepler is not fully unleashed (GTX680 is GK104 chip). I am holding off for the monster GK110. This is the card that will be over 50% faster than the GTX580, and make the 580 look somewhat 8800ish :)

One reason why I don't like Intel's constant socket changes.
Anyhow both HD 7970 & GTX680 are about even. One is not faster than the other. Both have strengths and weaknesses. INFO via 12+ reviews...

Yup Super, but remember the GK110's are not here yet. Also, the GTX680's are entry level at this stage GK104's. Agreed also that these cards do have advantages, and disadvantages BUT the drivers for the GK104's are not matured/optimised at this stage, so there is still a lot of potential of 7970 arse whooping to come from those 680's.

GK 110 is going to be a monster of a card, I guess it will give us something to spend next year's tax return on :)

Well I hope the drivers make them kick arid, anything for a price war. The interesting part of the GTX680 is I believe NV meant to have this card compete with the HD 7870 but ended up performing above and beyond with the HD 7970 price is instead, so they did a quick name change from say GTX670 to GTX680 and happelly jacked up the cards price. If AMD does not drop the HD 7970's of price, the 680 is going to sell very well.

Anyhow AMD should eliminate the threat with it's monster HD 7990 Dual GPU card based on HD 7970's.
