    What about it? It's a SLS and profiles would be needed for rendering games there, just as with any other game/resolution. Or what do you refere to?

    Tough luck, only benchmark apps get 3- & 4-way SLI. Of course 3 and 4 will work if the game dev makes the effort for it through DX12 for example, but that's not SLI anymore

    I have a feeling even today it's primary use is benchmark applications. I just wondered whether there was a >2 GPU in a commercial sense, albeit a very small segment. Also, is the multi-gpu capability in Windows 10 limited to 2 GPU's?

    Windows doesn't care how many display adapters you have

    And only relevant as long as no updated benchmarks come out, as I doubt Nvidia will bother to make sure 3/4 way SLI works for anything new that comes out. Although I suppose they might still enable it if it just happens to work with no effort on their end.

    Other than that as others have mentioned support for more than 2 Nvidia GPUs will depend entire on support in game/benchmark engines going forwards.
