Not sure if this has been mentioned already but that board (3:05) appears to be the Z390 and NOT Z490 Godlike. The Z490 only has 3 full length x16 PCI-E slots and 3 spaces between the upper most two. Update those purchase links before 3 people decide to waste an awful lot of time and money.

EVGA has not killed SLI yet but knife is in as the 1017 and above has SLI the 2080 was the bottom card to support SLI and now only the 3090 supports it and the result of will continue to shrink the consumers that have which end gaming company find it simply not worth the cost to implement in there games.

Dude... imagine releasing an SLI compatible graphics card, during an era where the CPU tech doesn't exist to keep up with it... Does Nvidia have a time machine or something?
The Yangem

imagine if Nvidia backtracks on their statement of 'no more SLI' in the sense that they just straight-up put full PCI express slots on the top of their cards and a mini little motherboard with it's own tiny CPU to handle the communication.

I'm somewhat confused because a game from 2018 is not playable without dropping under 60 fps on the highest possible settings, even with dual 3090s from two years after release using a technique that's practically dead. Like, wtf? What's happened to the times where you had the fastest consumer GPU and CPU and could play everything on max settings for the upcoming two or three years? For me it's quite unsatisfying to not be able to mindlessly crank everything up to max, even with a 2,000$ rig...

They really need to remake SLI and Crossfire surely there has to be a better way.. Maybe a new protocol or new standard? If it doesn't work rebuild it and see if your new monstrosity will work or even do better
