    It's just the default version offered by Nvidia to allow 10 series graphics card to operate in high bandwidth mode. I have no news regarding when the actual ROG design HB SLI bridge will be released but normally with SLI bridge the period of time to design and release is very quick. You can expect this won't be the only option available in the near future, however at this point in time it appears this is the only version we have available.

    FuryA/Bhaz,
    I assume this bridge will be supplied with new motherboards going forward is that correct? Absolutely nothing wrong with a bridge like this, I have always used the ASUS hard bridge in my systems but I have also always wanted the custom ASUS bridge, making the LED's RGB and function with AURA software may be difficult, solid RED works for me, or an onboard switch with several colors to chose from but I assume some people will want RGB functionality if possible or not

    A sli bridge that is defined by HB is not necessarily needed, a bridge that makes contact with both sides of the sli fingers on the video card is needed, some of the EVGA and MSI bridges work fine, I am not sure of the ASUS ROG bridge, if it does make contact on both sides it should work fine as a HB bridge, either way Nvidia control panel will identify if the bridge is sli capable on Pascal GPU's,

    been planning to hack a HB inside my Enthusiast tbh since asus cant seem to make a HB version and i do want the 4k performance and since the nvidia one has a LED it should not be to rough

    i just cant seem to part ways with my 2x strix + enthusiast bridge god they go great together once you get the red right on the cards which is actualy harder then it may seem

    //edit for the SLI bridge thing above it does make contact with both however being SLI capable and HB im not so sure its the same since most old 3 way have dual connections

    The ROG SLI bridge does in fact use both sides and is listed in GPUZ as High Bandwidth.
