    EVGA rolled out a trio of custom-design NVIDIA SLI bridge cables, one each for 2-way, 3-way, and 4-way SLI setups. Its design involves an ingot-shaped top, with three sides covered with brushed aluminum, and a centerpiece with a white glowing EVGA logo, next to an NVIDIA SLI one. The EVGA logo illuminates when the bridge is plugged in to GeForce GTX 700 series (or later) graphics cards. The 2-way, 3-way, and 4-way bridges are available on EVGA store, priced at $29.99, each.

    Features:
    • Several models that are compatible with 2-Way, 3-Way or 4-Way SLI.
    • EVGA logo illuminates on GeForce GTX 700 series and later.
    • Compatible with all SLI enabled graphics cards.
    • Looks awesome!

    Would nicely match a pair of GTX Titans (or any other cards using that cooler design).
    But come on, that can't cost more than $2 to build chargning $30 is ridiculous. $5 maybe??

    Ok, I'm as much into the looks of my PC as lot of people are.

    But no way am I paying $30 for multi-card bridges. That's just stupid.

    EVGA has gone the H-D (Harley Davidson) route: save your broken company by means of PR-pills all day all time and turn your customers into willing ***holes.... by making them believe they really really have to be sooo special :(

    They should sell at least a dozen of these at $30, the rest after they hit the bargain bin for $5.99...

    This is witchcraft! How does the bridge know the difference between a 770 and a 680?

    Instead of charging $9.99 for a $9 profit, why not charge $29.99 for a $29 profit? After all, people who are willing to buy in the first place are ready to spend any amount of money to bling up.

    most likely there has been a power pin added to the 7 series that isn't on the 6 series to illuminate the LED.

    I've use SLI since the 7 series, I wouldn't say it has been totally problem free, but I've only really had one major trouble with it. So I wouldn't say it has been nothing but trouble.

    Maybe the voltage used between the cards is higher on the GTX700 cards, and the LEDs won't work on previous cards that use a lower voltage?

    Yeeaah...I'd buy that..

    ....seriously people? If you knew how overpriced 99% of the stuff we buy is(every...almost every company is in business to make a profit)...this thing blends right in. Will get one just because...and done right.. it could look killer. I think I've spent more on braided cables....

    I like how they look, but if they were a bit cheaper ($19.99) then I'd get it, I dislike the floppy style dual card SLi connectors.

    Best investment I ever did with my 460s. Has aged much better than any past build.

    But this product...just stupid.
