[VR-Z] NVIDIA To Unlock SLI For AMD 990 Series Chipsets - Page 15

post #141 of 148
Awesome, about time. nforce chipsets sucked compared to amds chipset. If bulldozer can beat out SB clock for clock and reach similar overclocks to SB I will def get a 8 core bulldozer since I'm just waiting to see its performance to decide what to upgrade too.

obviously they have put their faith in BD, and think it's gonna sell well and steal a good share of market. Also obviously They have done their homework before going that way, which means they must have seen BD in action and then decided ( Thats what I assume anyway) ! If BD looks promising from their perspective thats very good news for us costumers !

Nvidia allowing SLI on the new AMD platforms? What does that say about what Nvidia thinks about how Bulldozer will perform?
maybe amd gave them a taste and they saw something they liked

if Bd is enough for hard ass nvidia to stand up and take notice there must be something to Bd

I'm drooling over the prospect of a setup like that...
That would be an amazing lan box. To bad lans don't happen near as much as they used to.

Smart business move by AMD. They were excluding anyone who wanted a SLI video card setup from going to their processor platform. While that's not a huge number of people, it speaks a lot about their belief in their product as a performer. Hopefully it delivers. I like competition, it gives us all faster hardware at lower prices.

I don't think it has much to do with AMD really. Nvidia is offering SLI licenses to the companies that make the boards, to allow SLI. The fee is going to be $5 a board according to TPU, which will probably be past down to the consumer. And all this license is, is a bit of embedded code in the bios that the drivers look for to allow SLI :/

If I'm not mistaken, AMD doesn't have any licenses fees for Crossfire, so any company under the sun can have it for their motherboards.
