Default Nvidia Intel SLI not performing

BACK IN THE MISTS of time, at CEBIT, we were present at Nvidia's official announcement of Nforce 4 SLI for Intel. Nvidia told us back then to expect boards within a few weeks from that announcement.
Yeah right.

That was almost two months ago and today you still cannot get them in shops, at least you cannot get them easily. I donít even recall seeing any reviews of retail boards on the Net.

But one of our industry sources managed to get one of the boards and did some internal testing and she was not that happy with performance of this Nforce 4 for Intel chipset. Not at all.

She said that performance is simply not there and that it will be very hard to persuade people to go into the shop and buy two graphic cards and plug them in Nforce 4 for Intel motherboards.

On the AMD side, Nforce 4 SLI can offer some drastic performance increase when you plug in a second card, especially in 3Dmark 03 and 05 tests. Games will benefit big time as well.

With Nforce 4 for Intel you will get a performance increase but not as much as you might expect from it when you base your performance assumptions on Nforce 4 for AMD numbers. Thatís why Nvidia already did two revisions of those motherboards and chipsets and is still holding its breath with retail availability of those motherboards.

Motherboard manufacturers are holding their breath too over the announcement of Nforce 4 SLI boards and are still trying to tweak the performance before they let them into retail, we learned. Ķ
