GeForce GTX 880M SLI Game Requirement Analysis

GeForce GTX 880M SLI is a combination of 2 GeForce GTX 880M put together using NVIDIA's SLI technology.
Together, this combination offers 3072 Shader Processing Units, 256 TMUs and 64 ROPs. This, on a 256-bit memory interface, per card, of fast GDDR5. While the central unit runs at 954MHz and goes up to 993MHz, in Turbo Mode, the memory clock operates at 1250MHz.
Best case scenario, this combination is expected to offer similar perform to a single desktop GeForce GTX 780 Ti but ultimately, its performance depends on the driver support and on the 3D application.
Therefore, and paired with a powerful processor, all demanding games should be playable at the highest settings. Still, this combination might surpass the 240W barrier of TDP and so only a few laptops will offer it.
