SLI: MSI GTX 460 Cyclone + MSI GTX 460 Hawk
 
Hello!

Just wondering, can we SLI both the MSI GTX 460 Cyclone 1GB and MSI GTX 460 Hawk 1GB together?


Thank you and regards!

I would imagine that would work fine. Both have 1gb memory, right?

And does SLI adjust clock speeds so they match? Or is SLI like CrossfireX now in that it doesn't match clock speeds?

Although they have different clock speeds, but if I am not wrong, in SLI mode, the card with the higher clock speed will lower its clock to match the other.

I wonder if this adjustment is automated or has to be configured in some driver or software settings...

Clock speeds are independent now and have been for quite some time.

Yes, clock speeds are independant, but it is still better to match the speeds to reduce problems.
