Nvidia SLI technology for Intel P55 Express chipset-based motherboards

Scalable Link Interface (SLI) technology for Intel Core i7 and i5 platforms

By CBR Staff Writer

Nvidia said that Intel and other motherboard manufacturers, including ASUS, EVGA, Gigabyte, and MSI have licensed Scalable Link Interface (SLI) technology for inclusion on their Intel P55 Express chipset-based motherboards designed for the upcoming Intel Core i7 and i5 processors in the LGA1156 socket.

The company said that customers who purchase P55-based motherboard and Core i7 and i5 processors can equip their PCs with any combination of Nvidia GeForce GPUs, including Quad SLI, for visual computing experience.

Clem Russo, VP and general manager of Intel client board division, said: “Nvidia SLI technology is a perfect complement to the processing prowess of our new Core i7 and Intel DP55KG desktop board. NVIDIA and Intel share a combined passion for furthering the PC as the definitive platform for gaming, and this combination will surely be attractive to anyone building or purchasing a brand new PC this fall.”

Nvidia said that as a result of the announcement, Nvidia SLI technology is now available for all consumer PC platforms, including the Intel Core i7, Core i5, Core 2 Quad and Core 2 Duo processors, as well as those based on the AMD Phenom II CPU.

In addition to raw graphics performance, Nvidia GeForce GPUs also provide gamers with additional capabilities not found on any other discrete graphics solutions, including Nvidia PhysX technology for deeper gaming immersion, and stereoscopic 3D gaming with Nvidia 3D Vision technology, the company said.
