NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX and GTS in SLI
Several weeks have passed since we first began our analysis of NVIDIA’s new generation of DirectX 10 video cards. Launched on November 8, 2006, the GeForce 8 series have become the leading performers out of all single GPU solutions, NVIDIA and ATI alike, available for retail. Today our analysis will center on multi-GPU configurations of the GTX and GTS models of the 8800 series. At the present moment, these are the only video cards available that support Microsoft DirectX 10.

In the course of this article we have used all 4 new GeForce 8800 GTS and GTX cards. The manufacturers of these cards are Foxconn, Gainward, and XFX. As you will see, these cards are all designed similar to each other, save for a few aesthetical changes primarily on the cooling solution, since they are all based on the same NVIDIA reference design.

Our main focus in this article is to test the performance of the 8800 GTS and GTX have under SLI. We will use a combination of synthetic tests, gaming tests, and power consumption tests in order to give you a better understanding of what to expect using SLI with the G80 architecture.
