After the GTX 670 launched to pretty much universal applause last Friday, a mini-controversy began brewing almost immediately: did it support 4-way SLI or not? The card uses the same GPU as the quad-enabled GTX 680, the PCB sports two SLI connectors, reviews from prominent online enthusiast sources listed the card as supporting quad-SLI, and heck, Asus photos for the GTX670 DirectCU II TOP even show it in a quad setup. Lots of other reviewers said 4-way SLI wasn't available, however. What gives? Does the GTX 670 support 4-card setups or what?
Great news! And as for those pics that showed four GTX670 DirectCU II TOPs, a concerned enthusiast named Trevor Foster reached out to Asus for clarification on Facebook. Asus responded quickly: "You are correct 3-Way is the max supported for this mostly we wanted to show it for size relation. If this looks misleading I apologize." (Thanks to Trevor for pointing me towards the clarification.)
So there you have it: the GTX 670 does not support 4-way SLI setups, but it will some day in the future.
