Two Different Versions Of Same Card

9 posts in this topic

Hi,

I am wondering if you can install two different versions of the same card into a system in SLI? I have the EVGA (I think) superclocked 780TI 3GB edition, wondering if I could install any other version without issues? Or does it have to be the same?

 

*side note, how the heck do you find out exactly which version you have? Windows details just say NVIDIA Geforce GTX 780TI

Same GPU and same RAM load out - however, they need not be identical otherwise.  (Yes - the same applies to CrossFire and CrossFireX.)

You have two options - nVidia Control Panel (still included with all ForceWare drivers) or GPU-Z (which is what it sounds like - CPU-Z for GPUs).

Thanks,

Though the Nvidia control panel gives me details about my card, does not tell me the full actual name, and whom made it, such as if it is EVGA.

Forgive me if this so obvious that it goes without mention, but why don't you just open it up and see what model it is?

The video card does not tell you this, it may say EVGA on it, but no other details. Even if it did, I would have to take it out of the system.

Actually there's a sticker on the card that tells you the full name and model and, as far as I'm aware, software will not display that for any model of GPU. Alternatively, you can find the same info on the card's box.

Well poo lol

 

Then I guess I have to pull it out. Thanks.

 

Now to confirm, from what I got, you guys said yes any version of the same card, but if they are different clock speeds etc......how does that work?

your sig says it's a Gigabyte... is it that, or eVGA?

 

anyway, the brand doesnt matter. you'll just want to make sure the 2nd card has the same amount of vRAM. If you have a Superclocked card, then, when in SLI, the card will just downclock to match the 2nd card.

 

fwiw, i used to run (2) 5770s CFX - one was XFX, one was Asus.

Yea my card says that, but I did the card after the fact, so I was not 100% on it.

Thanks :)
