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

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
