Techgage had a great, little intro on this just recently. The tech will be released next month.
The three most important features of this technology:
1. Almost perfect scaling
2. Can use any number of cards (no maximum as in SLI or CrossFire)
3. Can mix and match different cards (ATI and Nvidia)
It's a nice touch being able to mix and not-match video cards but they work anyway.
I prefer to buy one powerful card and make do with that though.
I can see where this idea will fly, especially with people who may need the benefits of multiple proprietary technologies offered by the two big graphics giants all on one whoop-ass computer.
Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
This is so awesome! I'm really glad to hear they managed to pull this off. Now I just can't wait to see you guys test it so I can see how well it scales. Also, I will be needing much larger motherboards to play with. No more of this piddly three or four PCIe slot business. I'm gonna need at least eight to feel satisfied now!
Wow, they didn't take very long to completely sell out everywhere. So'k though, I wasn't planning to upgrade until around Christmas time anyway.
