also for the 200 series, only EVGA GTX 285 Classified supports 4 way SLI.
I'm afraid so..

Also the requirments for the 285 classified and the switch, it was a way to trick the system that instead of 4x285s, you actually had two 295s, which helped to enable the 4-gpu sli support.

The Quad-SLI with single cards was fixed when the 4xx series came out as far as I remember. I don't remember on which drivers.
3-Way was possible from day one (except you can do surround on 3-way 2xx series), but quad was enabled later as far as I remember.
Yes, I'm very sure, you can check it here as well, then go to the "specification" tab, you will see it's written on the bottom.
About the "trick" then I assume if I'm using the same particular driver (with the EVGA classy) then I can perform 4way SLI eventhough I'm using other brands?

well that's an option to perform 4way SLI back then, do you think it will work with other brands?

Check the bot.. theres not many scores or entries for 4x way, but there are some. Gains are something like 20% [at best] over 3x way
