SLI is becoming increasingly accessible in the Core i7 world. MSI tells us it now features support for the Nvidia multi-GPU technology across its entire line of X58 motherboards, allowing even folks with the relatively affordable X58 Pro-E to run multiple GeForces in SLI.
To enable Nvidia SLI capabilities on the aforementioned mobos, all you need to do is install the latest BIOS update. MSI says that can be done either through the motherboard's built-in M-Flash tool or through the Window-based Live Update utility.
MSI isn't the only one to spread the SLI love. As you might recall, Gigabyte also decided to start offering SLI support across its entire X58 motherboard lineup two months ago.
