[N_V Blog] SLI licensed for AMD - Page 3

post #21 of 117
I am a little sad for the 880i SLi that never will be.

It's nice to have some competition in the chipset market. Not for price, but for different features.

Does this mean that the sli-hack for AMD motherboards will work with the latest drivers?

this. now they need more dual PCIe mATX boards.

good news still though

no it won't. The last AMD EVGA board (590 SLI) went into the ****ter. No quad-core support, no AM2+ support and they decided to take away the lifetime warranty just when AMD loses its grasp in the enthusiast market.

Quad support?

Quad cores didn't even exist until more than a year afterwards.

Good news, finally NVIDIA stopped being stubborn and opened up SLI to AMD chipsets. I wonder if 3 way will be supported in the future, but 2 way is good enough for me.

No, it is a good thing.

The licencing fee has already been reported to be only $5 per board. I would much rather pay 5 bucks for official support than to "hack it" and risk the chance that my second $500 GPU will be useless. Even if you have AMD GPUs, it is not like SLI is the only thing on the board that you paid for and won't use.

In other news, I found the "new CPU competitive landscape" comment in the press release very interesting biggrin.gif

I know it isn't great, but blocking it because I have ATI in the system is stupid. I might buy a nVidia card to run PhysX if a game with it were to interest me, but they obviously dont want my money.

Though this is a major wall brought down. I think it will make some better chipsets in the future.

Asus had a P6T X58 board and a P6T SE X58 board. The P6T had SLI while the P6T SE did not have SLI. Both boards were physically the same.

P6T was $50-60 more expensive than the P6T SE. With a BIOS flash, the P6T SE could be turned into a P6T with working SLI. Nvidia SLI licensing will cost more to the consumer.
