Remember there was a time when you had the choice of either an Intel chipset with a cool Nvidia card or high-powered AMD chipset with a piss-poor ATI card? Well, gamers are no longer constricted to the boundaries of contractual hardware marriages. Nvidia’s director of technical marketing, Tom Peterson, announced through a blog post that Nvidia will be supporting multi-video card setups utilizing SLI tech in combination with AMD chipsets.
I suppose some gamers in some remote corner of their parent’s basement are rejoicing. To further solidify that this really is happening, Peterson stated on the blog that…
we’ve been recently hearing chants of “SLI for AMD CPUs”, and figured that now is a great time to do it. After all, we want to make sure gamers can benefit from the new CPU competitive landscape and ensure they have NVIDIA SLI – the highest performance, most stable multi-GPU solution - to game on!A number of AMD chipsets will initially be supported for high-end Nvidia SLI compatible cards. Asus, Gigabyte, ASRock and MSI will be some of the first to offer up this cross-compatibility with more boards to support the feature in the near future.
I guess now you can prime your Superclocked EVGA to fit in snuggly with an AMD chipset in your beastly new rig.
