Following in the footsteps of Quantum3D, Tom's says that Gigabyte will announce the first single board SLI implmentation with NVIDIA's NV4x graphics chipset. The integration should reduce the cost of SLI performance and greatly simplify the hosting of SLI into a single x16 slot. Using 3DMark03, in Gigabyte's own testbed, the SLI card achieved 14,293 3DMarks, compared to 13,271 for the Radeon X850 XT Platinum Edition, and 12,680 for the GeForce 6800 Ultra.
We've also caught wind of GPU teaming with MSI's nForce4 Ultra board, which went through a late revision that appears to accomodate a second x16 card in an x2 slot. The performance of the 16+2 lane configuration falls only a bit short of the 8+8 arrangement of SLI-specific nForce4 boards.
