Building a rig? Think sli at 8x makes a difference? Check this out.
So, I recently replaced my mobo, ram and cpu with 32gb of Gskill 3000 DDR4 , ASUS Z170-a and I5 6600k. I was looking into possibly adding some SLI-ed when I noticed that this cpu only has 16 pci-e lanes. This made me worry that SLI-ing at 8x and 8x would make me lose a lot of performance. That is not the case because of the bandwith capabilities of pci-e 3.0. So if you're thinking of building a rig with an I5 and SLI, go for it!
