I've already stated that it does not increase vram. The two GPUs work together to a degree but this doesn't mean double the performance. Performance varies depending on game title and some games don't get any performance increase whatsoever.

Multi GPU support is also rather sketchy nowadays. The people who use SLI will do so to eke out a bit of extra performance at high resolution, but it's not something your average user will be interested in. A powerful single card is what most people would go for.
