[VR-Z] NVIDIA To Unlock SLI For AMD 990 Series Chipsets - Page 3

This means More competition for AMD/ATI. In turn means lower prices!! for us!!!
I bought FAKE stock in Nvidia with WSS, just to keep an eye on them. And I got to say they have been hurting lately in the profit share arena. Maybe they got a little desperate?
Regardless this is a WIN for everyone!!!
I will still be buying a AMD Card, but its nice to know my options are open.

EDIT: I wonder I this is the reason why we have heard very little about 990fx motherboards.
They been tossing this around, before building.

My question is Nvidia going to update the 980a chipset to allow for the bulldozer or am I limited to a Phenom II x6 for an upgrade....?

I bet they drop the Nvidia chipset all together like they did with Intel.

This is a win win deal for both nVidia and AMD. Now if Bulldozer has the treads to at least match Ivy Bridge . . .

Yes!!!

I'm not gonna lie. SLI is the only reason I'm running an Intel system right now. If it weren't for SLI, I'd still be rocking a Phenom II X6 1090T!

Bulldozer is looking better and better!
