Solved Gigabyte GA AX370-Gaming-5-rev-10 and GTX 1080 ti

January 17, 2018 at 19:56:40
Specs: Windows 10 64bit, Ryzen 1800X
Hello,

I went through gigabyte mobo page https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboar... but couldn't find relevant info and it's bit confusing as it says GTX 1050 in one image whereas I want to use multiple GTX 1080 ti cards

Could you please tell me how many GTX 1080 ti cards are supported in this mobo GA AX370 Gaming-5?

If I start with three GTX 1080 Ti cards in this board then later can I add three more cards so total will be six GTX 1080 ti cards.

Thank you for reading my thread. How do I...

Maybe you needed to do more research on the best components for what you are trying to do.

The only time I have seen reference to more than 2 or 3 GPU's recently is when rigs are made for generating bitcoins and the 'popular' GPU is the GTX1060 I believe for that. I am not even sure that that will continue being a viable way to make real money over the long haul so any rig you make would have to be completed and running now, not an inflated long term project to corner the market and cost more than it will ever produce.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

I am not sure if your question is serious or not but that MBoard has ONLY ONE PCIe x16 slot, which means ONE graphics card. Your Ryzen CPU doesn't have GPU capabilities either.

Also the price tags for that series graphics cards is insane.

Please note:
http://www.gigabyte.us/Motherboard/...
Shows the card has three 16x slots, one at 16x unless 2nd slot is used then both are 8x and a third at 4x (only if 1x slots are empty, otherwise 1x) that would be better saved for a PCIe SSD (if needed in addition to the M2 slot) or other expansion.
"Support for NVIDIA® Quad-GPU SLI™ and 2-Way NVIDIA® SLI™ technologies" is what it says but I do not see how with only 3 slots, In conclusion, you should be able to run 2 of them in SLI but I doubt that 3 or 4 could work.
Then there is the cost......

As per OtheHill: "Your Ryzen CPU doesn't have GPU capabilities either"

The R7 1800X will be OK for one 1080 Ti but will be a bottleneck if two are installed. 3 or 4 is out of the question, not to mention a total waste of money. Try this calculator:

I'm grateful you replied and wondering if that is correct then why did AMD made Ryzen 1800X because it was so expensive when it was launched and I got one at that time, what's the usage of this if it doesn't have graphics capabilities then what's it's usage? Do you know that?

2. I got best of best Mobo Gigabyte GA AX370-Gaming-5-rev-10 which was equally expensive at that time and it's strange it doesn't even have 3-6 GPU crads facility. Why did they charge such huge price for it, I'm wondering what's this mobo good at?

Ryzen is AMDs response to compete with Intel in the performance arena. There are different CPUs for different markets. Your Gigabyte motherboard has the word GAMING in the model name to indicate the target market.

Why would you WANT so many Graphics cards in one computer anyway?
