ThinkStation D20 Motherboard Questions

2016-09-09, 14:58 PM

Hi I was wondering does the D20 Motherboard support Geforce SLI? Regular GPUs not Quadros?

Also I was wondering what the form of the motherboard is? Is it ATX or E-ATX?

Welcome to the forum

 

SLI is only supported by Quadro in workstations. This is a limitation by NVidia, not Lenovo. Very few workstation applications (CAD/DCC/oil/gas/etc.) support or benefit from SLI anyway so the need for this is shrinking.

 

The D20 system board is a proprietary layout but closest to E-ATX. You would have to modify your D20 chassis if you're considering an aftermarket board. The standoffs will be the biggest hurdle with wiring being a close second.
