Question How to enable linked display adapter mode

Anyone know how to enable this in win 10? Heard this was used because multiple GPU is changing with vulkan. Did some searching only found links talking about how it's only doable in win 10.

Default Source link to what I'm yapping bout.

Source According to the Khronos Group's Vulkan presentation slides from GDC, the restrictions on Windows OS users is down to the fact that for Nvidia SLI or AMD CrossFire the "WDDM must be in 'linked display adapter' mode." This is a mode only supported in the new Windows 10 WDDM 2.0, an exclusive to the OS. Thus it looks like Vulkan gamers using Windows 7 or 8.1 will be restricted to single GPU usage for the foreseeable future.
