compatible with GX2 ?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Does someone know if the new video card 7950GX2 is compatible with the DFI Lanparty NF4 boards ?

On the http://www.nvidia.com/gx2 site, I only see a Infinity board which is compatible.

 

Thanks,

 

kind regards.

The 7950 should be compatible with any motherboard that can give it 16x

 

so yes it will work

The nVidia site has been known to be wrong before... this error doesn't suprise :rolleyes: me

 

They have claimed all motherboards with at least one PCIe 16x slot are compatible with their new 7950 GX2 card.

I'm thinking about getting one of these cards. In the BIOS do you have to switch the PCI-E lanes back to 16-x-x- etc or does it have to be 8-x-x-8 like it is for a standard SLI configuration?

The video card works either way, at 16X or 8X PCIe bandwith... however I have seen some handicap when system run in SLI configuration (8x - 8x) instead of using the 16X single slot, something like 10% less or even a little slower.

 

The card requires a 16X PCIe slot, there is no need for SLI unless you are using two... so disabling SLI at BIOS would be the rigth thing to do.
