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... Read more...
Until you see an official press release on the subject consider this nothing more than a very likely rumor backed up by a picture, but it looks like Intel might be adopting NVIDIA's SLI technology after all.

There's a certain allure in being able to make the claim that you can double the performance of anything. All too often, overzealous marketing campaigns in the high-tech field have made a "theoretical" claim of this sort, all the while falling well short in real-world performance metrics.  The PC graphics industry has had its hand at blurring this line, as well, but the last new architecture launches from both NVIDIA and ATi have in many cases actually delivered on this bold statement as compared to their respective previous-gen product offerings. Another way you can make this claim without totally having to sling the snake oil is to pair up two of your latest and greatest products... Read more...

AFR is the dominant mode in the drivers at the time of writing, whether or not it offers the best performance or not, but overall it's a mode that works well. You really have to sit down in front of... Read more...
Good morning all!  NVIDIA informed us of a new program they have started to ensure that consumers who purchase SLI capable motherboards and video cards have a good expereience.  The technology at work in NVIDIA's new SLI implementation is complex, and NVIDIA wants to be sure that someone with an MSI SLI capable motherboard, for example, will be able to use Gainward SLI enabled video cards.  This certification program is definitely a good idea, and should go a long way to ensuring that the move to an SLI capable system is a smooth one...
