SLI GTX 460's
I had an issue ordering a GTX 460 from NCIX and they replaced my order with this card:

01G-P3-1361-KR - EVGA GTX 460 1GB

It lists the memory interface as 192 bit. Can I still SLI this card with my current GTX 460 which is a 01G-P3-1380-KR and has a 256 bit memory interface?

Is this a misprint? From my understanding all cards with 1GB of memory had a 256bit Memory Interface and the cards with 192bit were the 768MB versions. I talked with their tech support who said they thought it was a mistake and said it "should" work but I have looked elsewhere and the 01G-P3-1361-KR Model is listed as having a 192bit interface.

AFAIK the chip has to be the same for SLI to work... The 192 bit memory interface chip is the GTX 460 v2, a newer version of the original GTX 460... So it probably won't work.

GeForce GTX 460 - Specifications - GeForce

EDIT: Looks like you are SOL...

Thanks for the info - I have sent in my order cancellation request!. Hopefully it goes through before its shipped they seemed to speed the process along this time because of my issues before.

Will not work sorry, have to both be 192, or 256 bit, kind of stupid there are 4 remakes of this card, I just grabbed a pair of 768 MB DDR5 card's , as they are all the same (other then Palit).
