Folding doesn't use the GPUs in SLI - they run separate clients. There isn't enough bandwidth in an SLI link to make folding work well over 2 cards, let alone 8.

Not going to happen any time soon.
They had troubles enough with making quad work.

3dfx

they had 2/4/8/16 way sli way back

now how is that not happen any time soon

back in those days though...

the bridge was on the card.. so no bandwith limitations

also Nvidia bought out 3dfx.... that is y it is still called SLI on the current cards...

Those old 8way and 16 way SLI setup were shocking as far as performance is 90% of games...

alot of the time they used to perform slower then the 2 or 4 way setup...

i used 2 have them... so i ain't just making it up...

the reason anything over quad SLI is pointless...

is that i am running just 2x480s in SLI...

and i can run Nvidia Surround with out any really issues (bar the VRAM one)

performance is good (normally around thr 50-60fps mark)

so you just don't need any more then say Tri in any situation i can think off..

first off the voodoo 2 and banshee used a sli ribbon cable
yes Nvidia bought out 3dfx

but they did not nut buy sli
the two things just share the same initials
sli was sold before 3dfx went out to another cump.

and the 8way and 16way cards were not relate like the rest
they were for military simulation
on lie, some are still use from what I know

Also what was the max SLI for the voodoo 2 again?

yup... all i will say is... it is who you know ....

i have run 60Hz 3d Surround (borrowed mate's glasses)

had to lower some settings from max...

but i think with 3 cards it wouldn't be a issue...

so like i said...

no TRI SLI is all you need tongue.gif

I've seen benchmarks where quad would get higher peak FPS, but lower FPS average and lower minimum FPS than 3-way. You'll see more benefit if scaling is improved and GPU's continue to be more powerful. Theoretically, FPS should increase 100% for each GPU, but we don't live in a perfect world.
