Always paired with a high end intel cpu. Even if on paper sli sounds great, you better get a single very fast gpu. Man, i dont understand people with like 3 or 4 ways sli. Must be so bad

    ive been here with a m2n sli with some wierd ali chipset with 2x 7700 ... did about the same thing and back then the 7700 whas a big deal.
    Linking cards after the voodoo2 always been a pain in the ass. (least that worked out of the box)
    if you dont like puzzles or cant deal with wierd computer problems i sugest you dont try sli/crossfire. its defently at a level you need to know what your doing
    even with a good expensive hardware i always had something wierd going on. the worst part of it that new games usualy always require driver updates to run in sli/crossfire that dont happen, usualy needing to find some obscure hacked driver etc.

    I feel like that replacement cap lead to instability. I have a lot of this old hardware lying around and have gotten a lot of it to work fine. Albeit not the same cards. I do have a Pentium II based IBM machine that blew out capacitors around the CPU and 3 out of 5 times it boots gives me smiley ASCII characters around the screen after POST. It wouldn't surprise me if that capacitor not being exact spec being a stability problem. I've also had RAM that did some WEIRD stuff. I'd try the experiment again with a period correct board and perhaps two 7100s that don't have bad caps. I say do this experiment again.

    • Jesse Hill
      Jesse Hill Месяц назад

      Oh and BTW, that IBM machine works. It's very unstable... but works. Moving over to a similar model IBM that had an identical Pentium II CPU (Deschutes) worked a hell of a lot better. Both running PC100 SDRAM with identical CAS latencies. I think there were a few variables off with this experiment.

    Didn't the GeForce 7xxx-series require cherry-picked pair matching, with the manufacturing week, factory location and VBIOS version matched? IIRC you couldn't just "buy a second card" for SLI until the 8xxx-series; you had to buy both at the same time, specifically paired up for SLI use - just like those early dual-DDR1 boards.

    OMFG I have a low-profile 8400GS! I used it for my go-to if my card back then broke because it actually worked decently at low settings to get me through in it's day, and had both VGA and DVI ports. Now I hang onto my low-profile GTX750TI for the same reason, and my 8400GS for nostalgia. Looks like I gotta get another and build an old XP copy for kicks!

    I never tried this, but I did once Hybrid Crossfire an HD3470 card with the Radeon 3200 on a 780GM chipset. It actually worked, but the performance was sucktastic. Years later, I tried the same trick with an AMD A10-6790K APU and an HD 6670 card. That combination worked, but the microstutter was so bad that it was almost unplayable.
    I don't think SLI or Crossfire with anything but high-end hardware is worth the effort except for laughs.
