I was wandering what will hapen if one soldered a sli conector to a gtx 1060 laptop gpu. Will the sli work or it will just not post anymore?

The Gtx1060 doesn't support SLI, only the gtx1070 and 1080 do.

 

If you really want SLI, you could go for a dual 980m, if the motherboard supports it

Thx for the reply, it's obvious that the card does not support sli at base, but I was wandering what it will happen if one soldered a sli bridge to the 1060 if someone tried it. I have a couple of dead 680's from an old clevo and I want to know if it is worth to buy 2 1060's for a diy project.

And is that unpopulated footprint really an SLI bridge/interface, or is it some debug/test interface?

Because if its not SLI the most likelly result is a pair of fried gpu's.

Most likely a sli footprint, the trace numbers are ok, position also.

I think that your laptop will only detect 1 of the 2 1060s, since SLI isn't supported, they'll never be able to communicate, even if you do solder an SLI bridge to the pins, there would be no software to make them communicate with each other. You'll probably end up killing one card.

so thats one answer. one thing puzzels me, why does your gpu has only 4gb of vram when it's supposed to have 6?

software bug, in gpuz and in nvidia control panel it is showing correct info, sadly maybe is the same for sli support..

I'm convinced that it's a bug, the gtx 1060 desktop doesn't support SLI so why would the mxm variant support it? Not to mention, there aren't any laptops with a 1060 SLI configuration. I don't think it's possible, hardware and software wise.

I am just thinking that maybe a harware mod actualy exist to enable sli on these cards. Why would Ngreedia be so greedy to take away one of the best SLI solutions that would have existed for Clevo P870DM users.
