Intel’s G965 Chipset to Feature Pumped Up Graphics - Page 2

post #11 of 13
The 955X and 975X can support SLI, nVidia will not certify either.

As for the 985X, well right now it seems like it's on the board which only appears in the road map, maybe it will be the one that will support Conroe with the 1333mhz fsb and definitely CrossFire and I seriously doubt that nVidia will ever certify ANY other chipset for SLI.

I red an article and it fallows:

For those hopping for a dual-card standard, industry analyst Jon Peddie said you better not hold your breath. "You're not going to get a stardard," said Peddie, founder of Jon Peddie Research. There's no conspiracy involved, it's just the practicalily of doing business, Peddie said nVidia might be reluctant to certify its videocards to work in all motherboards because that means it would have to take on the additional cost of tech support and the certification for those boards. Peddie added that he doesn't see this as a problem because dual-graphics gaming isn't something that appeals to a mass audience, vien the cost of purchasing two high-end videcards.

So chances are that nVidia will or may never Certify ANY other chipset for SLI support are very likely. And even if nVidia were to certify an Intel chipset for SLI, I wouldn't get a 2nd GS, I'd take a single X1900XTX right now.

What do you mean they do support SLI? Only with hacked BIOS's.

I think as CrossFire becomes more mature, Nvidia will have to fight back and enable SLI on all chipsets.

If they support CrossFire of course SLI will certainly work, proble is that nVidia will not certify the chipsets nor write the drivers for it.

nVidia is fighting back against CrossFire....it's called Quad-SLI.
