EVGA Announces Aluminum-Housed “Pro SLI Bridges” V2

By Published April 11, 2015 at 8:30 am

Graphics manufacturer EVGA yesterday announced its second iteration of “Pro SLI Bridges,” effectively prettied-up bridges for multi-card solutions. The Pro SLI Bridge V2 is housed in an aluminum and offers an illuminated EVGA logo front-and-center, for those with compatible EVGA devices.

Functionally, the SLI bridges are equivalent to all other SLI bridges; they ship in two-, three-, and four-way models, with the pin receptor plated in a shiny alloy (though this will remain mostly invisible). The bridges, as with all modern SLI bridges, support high pixel clocks for utilization of high-end displays.

They appear to be a bit on the “fat” side, but if you’re looking for something more aesthetically pleasing than the standard ribbon SLI cable that ships with motherboards, this would be worth a consideration. NVIDIA also sells its own alloy-encased SLI bridges with its own logo, if those are preferable. A 2-way, non-spaced bridge from NVIDIA retails at roughly $30. The EVGA bridge pricing is yet undisclosed.

Steve started GamersNexus back when it was just a cool name, and now it's grown into an expansive website with an overwhelming amount of features. He recalls his first difficult decision with GN's direction: "I didn't know whether or not I wanted 'Gamers' to have a possessive apostrophe -- I mean, grammatically it should, but I didn't like it in the name. It was ugly. I also had people who were typing apostrophes into the address bar - sigh. It made sense to just leave it as 'Gamers.'"

First world problems, Steve. First world problems.
