    What happened to your other one?
    If you had the right one the only difference between the new one and the old is aesthetics.
    For dual link HB you simply need......dual link LOL. As in both sets of SLI pins used. There is no magic genie inside the bridge. Its simply a connection from one card to the next. The older one shown in the comparison for this one in that link is not what is on the market. Ive not even seen a single. They are also still readily available. The only thing different with the new one other than the obvious is instead of a fixed red LED it has RGB that will synch up with the AURA.

    The old two slot version leaves me a bit puzzled. The uses are very limited, none of the Z170 or Z270 boards will support it due to the spacing. The only card I know of would be the X79/X89. All others you need the 3 way to make 2 way work and are just not using the middle set of pins. The new one actually makes sense as even when you can install them that close you wouldn't want to unless water cooling.

    Much as I hate to say it the MSI brige has the best aethetics with that bad a$$ dragon!

    As for when we will see the new one? Business as usual, Tease to build anticipation before release.

    I read where that the new HB bridge has some pins disconnected indicating to the GPU that it is a HB bridge and to bump the transmission speeds up from 400Mhz to 650Mhz, also it looks like the traces are laid out different possibly to reduce noise/interference

    I would also like to know the availability date of the new HB bridge.

    Hey all,

    Has anyone heard an update? I saw a couple of the Pax East intel challenge machines had them.

    As I stated before its obvious that more care was taken in the construction making traces the same length and EMI rejection but from what Ive done with original Nvidia cables and the lastest HB that came with a formula board the pin outs are the same.

    Roman did some analysis here: http://overclocking.guide/nvidia-hb-...hnical-review/


    Also here is an example of bridge incompatibility coupled with a higher clock rate: https://forums.evga.com/780SLI-Samsu...-m2190252.aspx
