    I guess that's what happens when there's no competition. You just do whatever the f you want.

    why go deeper when they can just go sub atomic deep by that standard the "deep" could go for miles!, there prices are getting ridiculous though

    Wait, why is this price surprising? NVLink as far as I remember has uses in professional applications; everything is expensive in that market. Did I misunderstand something?

    yeah, complain about the price on a professional part you will never use in your own pc...
    and IF you actually do, its not in a gaming rig, and your getting paid for the work/job, so ...

    most of the time sli only makes sense (to me) to use on the fastest single-chip card (as there is no other option to improve performance), so if you already have the cash for two Tis, the cpu/psu/cooling etc to support running them in sli, dont complain about few hundreds for a bridge (if this will be used for consumer stuff anyway).

    The person/company that needs this bridge is already spending $6,000. I doubt they'll even blink at another $600.

    ^ Literally this too, it's a 10% extra cost.

    Eh, people used it in the past as a more cost effective way of getting performance. I mean look, if SLI scaled well and was supported just as well we'd see a looot of SLI 1070s instead of single 1080Tis.

    It's for the workstation market so why bat an eye? Of course there will be those that fall for it. Just as those who buy Titan cards for gaming.
