Looking at construction of ASUS no-frills Nvidia SLI HB Bridge, it is just a fiberglass printed circuit borad (PCB) with scalable link interface (SLI) slots on it. Further, there is not LED fancy show setup on ASUS no-frills Nvidia SLI HB Bridge; it is pure simple with ASUS ROG branding printed on its PCB.
Specification wise, the bridge comes with 60mm or 2-slot spacing: 1 slot between two dual-slot thick graphics cards. The bridge will be sold separately as ASUS plans and prepares to launch the selling of upcoming motherboards lineup. You can see the image here for yourself how simple ASUS no –frills Nvidia SLI HB Bridge will be.
