Nvidia ups graphics ante with Quad SLI driver

Nvidia has released a driver for enthusiasts who want to build their own Quad SLI PCs.

Nvidia gave graphics enthusiasts the ability to build their own Quad SLI systems with the release Wednesday of a driver for the four-way graphics system.

Quad SLI is a technology that allows a PC to run four Nvidia graphics chips simultaneously, producing extremely high-quality images. But the technology is not for everyone. To see the benefits of Quad SLI, the user must have a monitor with a resolution of 2,560 pixels by 1,600 pixels -- far beyond the capability of the average desktop monitor.

The graphics produced by Quad SLI are stunning. A Quad SLI system demonstrated by Nvidia at the Computex exhibition in Taipei during June produced near movie-quality images.

For enthusiasts that wanted this kind of graphics power, Nvidia is offering them the ability to build their own systems with the release of a Quad SLI driver. The driver can be downloaded online at: http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_2k_91.45.html.

To build a Quad SLI system, users will need two Nvidia GeForce 7950 graphics cards, each packing two graphics processors and 1G byte of memory, well as a Quad SLI-compatible motherboard and power supply. A list of compatible products is available at: http://www.slizone.com/object/slizone_gf7950_gx2.html

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.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
