My thought though is how many people actually do SLI? I know there are a lot of member here, but isn't the majority content with a single card solution? Most computers are built for business/offices, and most of those just have an integrated card anyway. I don't see why either company really sees this as a big deal. I mean sure, SLI/Crossfire is cool technology, but most people just don't use it.

lol looks like intel is finally getting SLi in its chipsets xD if nvidia doesn't handover that tech, they can kiss themselves goodbye - no nehalem support = no more business for their intel-supporting chipset

I can see why Nvidia doesn't want to hand out that SLi capability. If that tech doesn't stay exclusive to Nvidia chipsets, there's no good reason to have an Nvidia chipset. AMD probably doesn't want Intel to get the tech either. Crossfire is the only multi-GPU technology available to Intel chipsets and I'm sure there are people out there that run Crossfire setups purely because they wanted the speed and quality of an Intel board plus the benefit of two or more GPUs. Add SLi as an option and AMD loses a slice of their marketshare they really can't afford to lose.

But there's enough money involved for them to care. These idiots are so confident in their market share that they can afford to dilly around. If they would work together they could finish AMD off, but they are too greedy to do it.

Intel doesnt care about SLI.They are not doin this for the extra money they may gain from their boards supportin SLI.The purpose is one and oh so clear.They want to economically kneel nvidia and buy it.Cause either way,acceptal or refusal of SLI license handover,the first to take the major hit will be nvidia.In the first case they will loose a huge portion of MB market and in the second case...well they loose everythin instantly.
It is simple...intel doesnt like a picture where its major competitor covers more parts of the market than it,and AMD currently does...

Actually, Intel might have to give nehalem licence anyway, because I see a lot of nForce boards here. And NVidia in the past, wouldn't give thier SLi lisence.

Ok all we need is nVidia to say no GPU for intel then intel have no high end GPU so

AMD = Win
Ati = win
nVidia = Kinda win
Intel = Fail

What do us gamers prefer? Intel chipsets or Nvidia?
as an AMD user your opinion on this matter is invalid, since there are no Intel chipsets that would even work with your CPU you aren't in a position to ask such a question.

there are intel chipsets that perform well. maybe more expensive, yes, but they still perform well.
