Question If I add another RTX 2080 Ti in NV-Link, will that also double my CPU usage?

For example,

Currently, with my 4k 144hz monitor, my PC usage is as follows under full gaming load:

9900k CPU usage: 30%
RTX 2080 Ti GPU usage: 100%


If I add another RTX 2080 Ti in NV-LINK, will that also double my CPU usage under full gaming load?

9900k CPU usage: 60%
RTX 2080 Ti GPU usage: 100%
RTX 2080 Ti GPU usage: 100%


Is this how scaling works?

No, it wouldnt double CPU load.
The only theoretical increase is the CPU sending information to the GPU for rendering/display, most of your in game CPU load is the CPU running the game itself.
A second card would only see marginal, if any, CPU load.
