I think I saw this on some YouTube video where some guy ran 7 virtual machines on a single PC, creating a 7-gamer station with one computer. He had to use new (brand new at the time) AMD Nano GPUs but got some decent gaming results. I know he had to get a custom fab cooling system, I wonder if this is the same company that created his system for him.

This is exactly the same block.
EK provided images from that setup, but they were watermarked with Linus Tech Tips' logo so we did not publish them on our site.

@hellwig - Linus(the creator of the 7 gamers on a system) made a post on twitter that EKWB released the block, and If I am correct, it was custom made for that rig at the time.

Worth noting the top system on the Arion CUDA test site has seven Titans, though that was done with an external 4-way PCI Express splitter box, which in theory means one could connect up to 28 cards (but I doubt the drivers could handle that many).

Side note: years ago SGI was planning on increasing its GPU scaling support to 256 pipes and beyond. Given most of SGI's gfx people moved to NVIDIA, I wonder how much of that scaling dev knowledge went with them...

Seriously. I paid good money for my 980 Ti whereas YouTubers have like, five in their closet because all of their other rigs are already equipped with four each.
