NVidia and Dell unveil Quad-SLI technology

NVidia today well and truly upped the ante on its SLI dual graphics card technology by introducing the ability to use four of its high-end 512MB GeForce 7800 GTX GPUs simultaneously on an NVidia nForce4 SLI X16 motherboard.

The catch is that the Quad-SLI solution uses two 1GB graphics boards, each with two graphics processors. Cheekily, each card actually consists of two circuit boards that are connected with a video bridge and some screws.

NVidia's Quad SLI technology should become available more widely in Spring and will allow gamers to play supported titles with smooth frame rates at high definition resolutions up to 2560x1600. Image quality should also see improvements through 32x antialising and 16x anisotropic filtering.

Don't have a monitor capable of 2560x1600? Take a look at Dell's newly launched 30-inch Ultrasharp 3007WFP.

Michael Dell used part of his keynote presentation to help NVidia make the announcement and unveiled the first Quad-SLI-equipped system: the Dell XPS 600 Renegade PC.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
