    Whether to SLI or not to SLI, that is the question.

      With the arrival of the new PPro CC, the usage of two GPUs is implemented. I was excited when I found out about this but I wondered if we could use NVidia cards in SLI configuration or not. Well, today I have the answer: you get better results if you setup your cards in SLI. Obviously, you must follow the NVidia rules to set up two cards in SLI: same GPU, same speed, etc.

       

      I tested this with two Titan cards exporting a 21 minute video. With one card only, my computer took 5' 45" to export. With two cards (no SLI), it took 5'; and with two cards (SLI), the computer took 4' 10".

       

      Word of warning: my set-up needs tons of electricity to work. My APC Smart-UPS 1500 gave me five warnings that I had exceeded the load threshold (80%) but luckily it wasn't by much: only 1%.
