Intel doesn't allow SLI on Conroe platforms

Posted on Wednesday, June 28 2006 @ 00:35:35 CEST by

The Inq has some info about the Conroe chipsets and why they don't support NVIDIA's SLI:
There is a big chance that Intel doesn't want to allow Nvidia to run SLI, as it doesn't want to make a big thing about SLI on its own Conroe machines.

Intel is in the bed with ATI and signed a cross-licensing agreement quite some time ago, the upshot of which is that it officially supports ATI's Crossfire on Intel 975/965 boards. We hear that Intel doesn’t want to let Nvidia's SLI to run on its boards, at least not officially.
More info over here.

There goes Intel again using strongarm tactics to rule the market. This ought to more than prove AMD's points in the lawsuit. Nice job Intel. You didn't have to make it so easy.

Of course added to that wouldn't possibly be that Intel is angry that Dell used Nforce boards to get quad sli going. hehe

Intel just makes these things way too easy.
