sorry about this question, its just that i read on some forums and want to know if it is true...


the gtx 260 core 216 in sli need a sli bridge? i mean, some guy says that he reads in the nvidia forums that these cards dont need a sli bridge. is that tru?


thank you :)
 
You can run it without an SLI bridge (some driver versions won't allow it), but that will generally lower performance. The SLI bridge is used to pass along very specific information between the cards to sync them up so without that bridge those calculations that would be otherwise made automatically are passe for the CPU to process and then sent out to the cards which causes delay.
