4 GPUs in ASRock's X399 Taichi

I am thinking of using 4 GPUs to do some GPU rendering, however the X399 only fits two 1080 TIs. Does anybody know of the best GPUs that can fit in all four slots of the X399 Taichi? And would these four GPUs be better than two 1080 TIs?

Considering you are preparing to spend nearly $1000 for a CPU and $2000-$5000 for GPUs, not to mention other components, I'm guessing you have already researched that GPU rendering is faster in your particular type of rendering and it supports that many simultaneous GPUs. Or even supports GPU rendering at all.

What GPU is best for you depends a bit on what your specific need is. Usually the most important characteristic to look out for in a rendering card is the number of cores. Second, sufficient RAM to fit all the geometry and textures inside. If the frame buffer is not large enough, then some assets will overflow into main system RAM which runs much slower.

You should start looking at Titans. Even the older Titan XP slightly beats the GTX1080Ti, but the Titan V absolutely murders them in VRAY for example.

That being said, such money would buy you some serious rental time/credits on cloud rendering services.
