SLI Technology Coming to P55 Motherboards Page: 1
Intel and nVidia settle their differences!
You will now be able to run multiple GPUs using Nvidia's SLI technology on a P55 motherboard when they arrived next month. According to nVidia; Intel, MSI, Asus, Gigabyte and EVGA have all signed licensing agreements to use the technology on their motherboards based on the P55 Express chipset.
Whatever issues Intel and Nvidia had with each other, have been put to one side, making X58 and P55 the only non-Nvidia chipset boards capable of running multiple GPUs in SLI. This agreement now gives Nvidia coverage of all of the consumer platforms, including Intel Core i7/i5/i3 and AMD's Phenom II. This means users will now be able to buy a motherboard and worry about their choice of GPU later, as they are not locked down to any particular manufacturer any more. A wise move by Nvidia, finally settling the confusion that hung over the situation.
