GeForce GTX 480 SLI Game Requirement Analysis

GeForce GTX 480 SLI is a solution of two GeForce GTX 480 put together using NVIDIA'S SLI technology.
SLI relies a lot on proper driver support and may cause micro stuttering in FPS below 30. This means this combination might even perform worse than a single GTX 480.
The optimal performance it delivers is largely better than a single GeForce GTX 480 and relatively close to GeForce GTX 590.
Therefore, this combination is sufficient for gaming at 1080p and most demanding games can be played at the highest settings.
