wow, nice. But why would someone try that in the first place :huh:

No, what I mean is, where did that guy get the idea to put a graka in a pci-e 1x slot, and try that with sli :wtf: Did he know what he whas doing, or did he just experimented???


BTW: will a graka pci-e work in a pci-e 1x slot???

it's a PCI-E 2x slot and it's as fast as AGP4x =)

ow, idd it's a 2x slot, but still. Even if it's as fast as a AGP4x slot, is the graka designed to work in a pci-e 2x slot?

It's weird, it's maybe only plugged in the mobo for 1/3 or so, but still it works ??? Is it because all traffic goes via the PCI-e 16x slot and the 2x only powers the card ???

www.tomshardware.com ; look around a bit, videocard can work on 1x PCI-e

so it's possible to use a sli setup in 2 1x pci e slots? Maybe not so fast, but it's possible.
