we are here in this forum because we are more or less fans of different products and capabilities, and we are here to exchange information to help one another out, and mostly because we are quite technical in nature and have a good community - better than most forums So, with that said: How is nvidia planning to compensate all the folks and fans that bought a 3rd or 4th pascal based on nvidia 's announcement of the enthusiast key in the published pdf and white paper ? If nvidia said it would have a website and enthusiast key for 3 and 4 way sli, and folks bought the cards on the communication, isn't nvidia liable to make good or compensate those folks who made the additional purchase? It has nothing to do with weather or not someone likes 3 and 4 gpu solutions, so don't focus on that, it's about purchases made based on nvidia claiming a method to enable it via an enthusiast key. and the enthusiast key was not limited to benchmark suites alone, when the paper was released, there were no stipulations other than enabling the 3 and 4 way sli. the pdf, the white paper and the announcement -all described unlocking with the enthusiast key. Changing that commitment AFTER people have bought the cards is where the issue is. It has nothing to do with weather or one agrees with 3 or 4 way SLI On that point alone, nvidia should compensate individuals or follow through with the full promise to make those capabilities available. Copy paste from 1080gtx announcement, pdf, and the white paper: """"" Enthusiast Key While NVIDIA no longer recommends 3 or 4 way systems for SLI, we know that true enthusiasts will not be swayed...and in fact some games will continue to deliver great scaling beyond two GPUs. For this class of user we have developed an Enthusiast Key that can be downloaded off of NVIDIA’s website and loaded into an individual’s GPU. This process involves: 1. Run an app locally to generate a signature for your GPU 2. Request an Enthusiast Key from an upcoming NVIDIA Enthusiast Key website 3. Download your key 4. Install your key to unlock the 3 and 4-way function Full details on the process are available on the NVIDIA Enthusiast Key website, which will be available at the time GeForce GTX 1080 GPUs are available in users’ hands.
