Intel X38 Chipset To Support NVIDIA SLI?

Charlie over at The Inquirer posted another blurb today stating that Intel's upcoming X38 chipset will support NVIDIA's SLI multi-GPU technology, as well as ATI's CrossFire.  This rumor first hit during Computex, but NVIDIA reps spoke up and claimed it was false at the time.  Now The Inquirer claims that they've spoken with some unamed engineers and that they have confirmed that X38 will support SLI...
"Now we are sure that NV will deny it up and down, but seeing as how they have trouble with anything relating to the truth, I would urge the reader to ignore them. The engineers tell us that SLI drivers are in the final state of polishing with a few bugs left to quash, but plenty of time remains to finish things up."
As always, time will tell.  X38-based motherboards should be arriving sometime next quarter.

I hope it's true and is long overdue. For those who don't mind paying top dollar for the latest video card in an SLI or Crossfire setup this really could be handy. There has always been alot of competition between the 2 companies and it's frustrating trying to pick 1 to go with in hopes that they will stay on top with the best video card. If you want to spend over a grand on a dual card configuration with a flagship series than you shouldn't have to play guessing games with you chipset choice and probally end up having to spend 200-300 dollars on a new MB to boot also forcing you to reinstall your OS too.
