I'm having a hard time trying to figure this out. I'm running a rendering software that requires 8x PCIe lanes pers card and I'm looking at a lot of 6 GPU's to build a system with. At 6 cards running 8x pcie lanes each = 48 pcie lanes total.
As far as I understand the only ,motherboards on the market that have that kind of support are CEB x99 and x299 boards.
I know there are processors that have 48 lanes such as the Xeon W LGA 2066 chips, but I'm unsure how the lanes get allocated and I doubt they run all 48 to graphics.
Would I have to go with a dual processor system? Not sure where to begin to figure out a budget friendly solution.
