Default Triple SLI is here....

Is anybody here going for it?



It says that ONLY the 8800 GTX and Ultra are allowed to play...?? That's just s*&@%!

Considering the Ultra and GTX are on their way out and the G92 cards are not compatible with it, I think this is a borderline dead application already. That being said, maybe there will be other cards down the road with this feature.

On the other hand, I have a sinking feeling that Nvidia will ONLY use 3-way SLI for their high-end cards in the future. This would be a huge letdown considering ATI allows Quadfire on nearly all of their new cards.

I'd be surprised if it wasn't also an option with future cards - the high-end, at least. That said, anyone with the money to buy three high-end cards is doubtlessly going to have plenty of other toys in their computer, but the 3 GPU's are going to occupy 6 six explansion slots, to say nothing of the in-case heat dump, even with the double-slot coolers. Really, it would almost make water-cooling mandatory.
