NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti NVLink SLI Scaling Explored
GeForce RTX 2080Ti NVLink SLI - Rainbow Six: Siege and F1 2018
Rainbow Six holds a special place in the hearts of many PC gamers, as it's one of only a handful of titles that have spanned decades with sequels being released and still garnering popularity. Unlike most FPS games which are run, gun and respawn. Rainbow Six Siege takes a different approach, requiring tactical precision and teamwork, rather than just rapid-fire twitch response.

This time we see something that honestly was a bit surprising. The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti cards actually lose performance, though that in itself is not much of a surprise as some games simply do not utilize multi-GPU very well. However, add to this the fact that the RTX cards in NVLink show a 21.34% scaling increase at 1440p and a 49.57% increase at 4K tells us that NVLink is a completely different animal entirely. Just for the sake of having all numbers accounted for, the 1080 Tis in HB SLI showed at 1440p a -2.79% result, and at 4K a -7.50% result.
