does anyone know if a SLI of 2 Nvidia 2080 TI is working on a Z4 G4 with Intel Core i9-7900X CPU and Intel X299 Chipset?

HP only supports specific models in the "QUADRO" line of video cards....consumer models will not work under SLI

HP is "VERY" specific on which video cards the z series workstations can use in SLI mode, if a nvidia card is not listed then there will be no SLI support. this is due to licensing restrictions from nvidia, HP only licenses some QUADRO models for SLI..... no consumer card models will work in SLI mode on HP's workstation lines
in reguards to the AMD "W" series workstation video card line, you might be able to use Crossfire, as amd never had the restrictions on it that nvidia has on their SLI

Hi, it should work, but this is not supported/tested by HP solution (may be not yet), note that z4 chassis is not very suitable for 2 dual slot high performance card like 2080ti. I am running one 2080ti and second one would fit with huge problems , and if yes, you can forget pluggin something else into other PCIE slots - I was also considering this option.
I think 2080 does not use SLI anymore , but display link bridge (not sure 100%, google it)
HP factory installed 2080ti in z4 will be available later in 2019 after qualification, dual card setup not yet clear.
Rule #1 - always use Geforce with Quadro style blower design, avoid using dual /triple fan designs, it blows heat to motherboard components.

I'm very curious if you tried 2x rxt cards on a z4? Seriously considering a xeon z4 for a dual gpu setup but I can see space will be tight due to the layout of pcie slots. Which cards do you use? blower type is supposed to be more ideal in this case, but I'm not sure..

have you had the chance to try two RTX2080ti´s yet?
I´m currently in the same situation, considering to buy another one. I´m quite uncertain if this will work and hope that someone else had the chance, before I spend 1300€ for nothing 😞
I have a Z4 with an i9-7940X and 1000W psu and of course the x299 chipset wich is capable of SLI/NVlink.
From my experience with my Z840 only Quadro SLI works (had 2x P4000´s) and Geforce (2x GTX 1080´s) SLI won´t work at all, but these Workstations had only XEON configurations and C612 Series Chipsets. Now with the launch of the Core i CPUs and x299 in the Z4 line-up I would think that it should work now, not only because HP is selling a NVIDIA SLI 2-slot Graphics Connector (2YY84AA) but also because HP differs between SLI Connector and Quadro RTX NVLink connectors (6FY12AA).

Unlike consumer systems, HP only supports "some" Quadro models in SLI mode. please check the quickspecs for your model and you will then see which (if any) are supported in SLI
again, just to be clear,......NO CONSUMER VIDEO CARDS ARE SUPPORTED IN SLI MODE ON THE HP WORKSTATION Models
