nVidia bringing SLI to AMD



/ 6 years ago

GPU giant nVidia announced yesterday that future AMD motherboards will be blessed with their propietary multi-gpu technology: SLi (or Scalable Link Interface). The ever increasing array of affordable, well performing kit has finally reeled nVidia into the segment (that and the ongoing call by gamers for budget SLi).

Following the demand, nVidia have finally licenensed their solution to AMD for use in the next generation of chipsets including 990FX, 990X and 970. ASUS, ASRock, Gigabyte, and MSI are among the first motherboard manufacturers to offer this new capability for AMD, with more coming on-board shortly.

Gamers looking for the perfect balance of power, performance and price should seriously start thinking about a new build involving the new architecture that is Bulldozer as we now have products that fit the gap.

Guess I can start planning for my Dream bulldozer build then, as the platform fits me juuust right.

    Great News 😀 Even though I am getting another 6870 next week so I am not changing soon but this opens up tonnes of competition :pIf this didn't happen, I would just use SLIhack 😉

    What made you go for another 6870 and not get a 6950 instead?

    Yeah, I was gonna ask the same the same thing, the 6950 unlocks to a 6970! Although, I read that you wrote 'another' and so I assume your crossfiring two of those badboys. The performance should be staggering 🙂

    Because I currently have a 6870 🙂 I would LOVE to go 6950 crossfire but I won this 6870 in a competition so I though I should just get another one :)Would there be a big difference from going 6870 crossfire to 6950 crossfire?
