Good motherboard for 4 GPUs...any suggestions?

Hi everyone,

I’m going to be upgrading my motherboard to one that can support 4 GPUs for cycles. I have an i7 2600k (LGA 2011). I was looking at the GA-X79UD3, which goes for about $200. Does anyone have any suggestions that might be better than this unit? I’d like to keep cost below $250 or so.

Thanks, in advance.

Hi, the GA-X79UD3 has 4 PCIe slots but only 3 usable for Cycles GPU, may you can use a single slot card in the last PCIe slot.
There is he Aszs P9X79-E WS with real 4 double slots but 370$.
But 3 Titan is also not bad. :smiley:

Cheers, mib.

Thanks, mib,

I was unaware that the X79UD3 could only handle 3 GPUs for cycles, so I appreciate the heads up! I’ll probably still go with it, given the price difference. I actually only have three GPUs for now, but wanted to leave room for a 4th, if possible. I suppose I’ll just have to upgrade to 4 units later on.

Only one Titan for now, the other two are 4GB 670s, but still nothing to complain about!

Thanks again :smiley:
