hi!

Just wandered if I can run sli on Asus P5Q Deluxe??
Heard something about that only nvidia mobos can run sli, but is this true?


Thanks

Thats an ATI Crossfire board. You can only run a dual GPU configuration with ATI cards.

yep, thats true, you need a motherboard with an Nvidia chipset such as the 650i, 680i, 750i, 780i and 790i in order to run SLi.

Intel just recently figured out a way to run SLI on X38/X48 board, but you have to physically add the SLI chip to the existing X38/X48 chipset, which would change all the reference boards. So it's still not going to happen. But a MB manufacturer could theoretically create a non-reference X38/X48 SLI board.

There's a thread around here somewhere with a link to the Intel document about this, but I've clean forgotten where it is. A search might turn it up though.

The only Intel chipset based motherboard that has the Media Communications Processor required for SLi is the dual CPU Skulltrail.

You don't even need a SLI chip. Intel wants to do it. NVIDIA says no and will NOT allow SLI without one of their chipsets. If NVIDIA gives the license to Intel, Intel could cut off NVIDIA access to their CPU information and kill off NVIDIA's chipsets.

2nd that, I'm getting sick of nvidia, There a bunch of pansy's at the plant anyways. Sure they've got good cards but cmon learn to share.... then they might actually make more of a profit.

lol and people think Intel boards are overpriced now... do away with competition from nVidia and you'll be looking at even more expensive motherboards.
