    SLI Bridge -- NVidia Graphics?

    I am thinking about purchasing a second NVidia M4000 to use with Avid Media Composer / Symphony via SLI Bridge on an HP Z620.

    Does anyone have any experience with the SLI Bridge technology?  Does it work with Avid?  If so, does it significantly improve performance.  Looking especially to enhance 4K playback.

    Thanks

    First time I've seen someone ask about the Nvidia SLI and Avid MC, I will ask hardware team about this.

    If you monitor your GPU performance are you seeing your M4000 at 100% for any operations inside Media Composer? I certainly don’t with my P4000 so I’m guessing that even if Media Composer supported an SLI bridge of some sort that it wouldn’t make any difference (or rather, would not improve playback performance). I’ll be interested to hear from Ralph on this one.

    Cheers

     Media Composer does not utilize multiple GPUs.  Nvidia SLI will not benefit.
