V4 subs do expose more GPUs with net render - mainly so we can test the waters on how to support something like what this request is asking for - but the issue issue really comes down to support for us. There are so many variables that can explode from a user support perspective when you add network rendering that it's the primary reason we really want to be careful doing this in the monthly subs. This will get way more complicated with NV Link, RTX on/off and other things you can mix and match, even on on the same system, much less over netrender. So for now, we are going to be cautious in how many GPUs we support in first 2018/2019 releases until at least RTX support and NV link are both much more mature and we know what the support requirements will be going forward. It also make sense to dial back max GPU and netrender support for subs if scenes can render 5x faster on a 2080 (RTX on) than on a 1080, as the current RTX benchmark scene is doing (10x faster for info passes).
