NVIDIA SLI technology licensed by manufacturers
Intel, Gigabyte, MSI approve SLI for use on Intel P67 Express Chipset-based motherboards
NVIDIA's new NVIDIA SLI technology has now been licensed by several leading motherboard manufacturers including Intel, ASUS, Gigabyte, MSI and EVGA, for use on Intel P67 Express Chipset-based motherboards, designed for the soon-to-be-released Intel Sandy Bridge processors.
"The combined processing prowess of Sandy Bridge and NVIDIA SLI technology will provide consumers with the building blocks for the ultimate gaming PC platform," said Joel Christensen, General Manager of Intel Client Board Division at Intel Corporation. "Both NVIDIA and Intel continue to share a combined passion for furthering the PC as the definitive platform for gaming, and this combination will surely be attractive to anyone building or purchasing a brand new PC in 2011."
Customers who buy a SLI-certified P67-based motherboard and Sandy Bridge processor can now use any combination of NVIDIA GeForce GPUs, including the recently released GeForce GTX 580 GPU.
NVIDIA's SLI technology is now available for all consumer-based desktop and mobile PC platforms. This includes the Intel Core i7, Core i5, Core i3, Core 2 Quad and Core 2 Duo processors and the AMD Phenom II CPU.
NVIDIA's DX11 GPUs are designed to deliver the fastest available performance for DX11 games and feature multiple tessellation engines for advanced graphics rendering capabilities. The DX11 GPU is currently the only consumer GPU to feature this technology.
