Is it possible to sli a gtx 680 with a gtx 770?

Since they are like the same but different clocks is it possible to sli them?

Yeah, it won't work. The only case I know where that worked was the 9800 and the GTS 250.

No that's not how it works. Technically all GPU's from a given series are a rebranded GPU from the highest tier GPU. They are broken down into smaller tiers based on how many active cores they had when inspected.

I never thought of that.
So each lower one is just a higher one that was a bit defective?

IIRC you can only SLI from the same series

Exceot that the 680 and 770 is the exact same gpu? Same amount of Streamprocessors and stuff

Yeah, ThePCElitist usually doesn't know what he's talking about.

On topic, it is possible to flash a 770 BIOS onto a 680, but Nvidia usually doesn't allow SLI between different cards so I have a feeling that SLI is manually locked out.
