Bout damned time. The lack of SLI without a hack was a large reason I went with Intel over AMD in my build.

This is terrible news

It means one big thing and that's nVidia has realized that they can't compete with AMD's chipsets and that if they want to sell more GPU's, they have to admit it and put SLI on AMD chipsets. However, I'm hoping that they aren't licensing through AMD but rather through the motherboard makers.

Unfortunately, this means that our great and reasonably priced motherboards will have a higher price tag to make up for nVidia's licensing cost so here's hoping they only make a couple of 990FX boards that support SLI so the rest of us don't have to pay that mark up.

The "mark up" isn't that unreasonable:

NVIDIA demands a fee of about $5 for each SLI-certified motherboard sold.

Posts like these are pointless if you don't link an earlier source.

The date of the article is the 31st, so how is this old? I don't recall seeing a previous article about SLI on BD platform.

awesomepausum.

I'm thinking of switching to nvidia when I grab bulldozer. But it all depends on that pesky VRM quality.
