Bridges for SLI multi-GPU setups are usually pretty simple affairs—a couple of connectors with either a ribbon cable or a tiny circuit board in between. Well, Nvidia is looking to change that. The company now sells a selection of stylish, LED-infused bridges at its online store. According to the firm, these are the "same LED bridges that you may have seen recently in our configured systems showcased at our events, including Game24."
The bridges are available in three variants: 2-Way and 2-Way Spaced, both of which are priced at $29.99, and 3-Way, which costs $39.99. Nvidia says these are supported on reference designs of recent GeForce GTX graphics cards, including the GTX 770, GTX 780, GTX 780 Ti, GTX 970, GTX 980, GTX Titan, and GTX Titan Black.
Honestly, I'm not sure I'd pay 30 bucks for a prettier version of something that's already free with most SLI-capable motherboards. Then again, I guess I can't fault folks with windowed PCs for wanting to show off—especially if they've spent thousands on their graphics setup to begin with.
