Intel announced NVIDIA has enabled support for its SLI technology on Intel's mobile chipsets.
An Intel Corp. executive in Taiwan said that Nvidia Corp. has enabled support of its multi-GPU technology on Intel’s mobile chipsets to provide customers high-performance notebooks based on the new Core 2 Duo processors and two GeForce graphics processing units.

Vincent Lee, Intel’s Regional Sales Manager of South China, is reported to have said that Nvidia had authorized Intel 945GM and 945PM chipsets to support the company’s SLI technology. Chinese web-site HKEPC claims that due to impossibility to reprogram PCI Express lanes available in mobile versions of Intel 945-series chipsets, PCI Express lanes from Intel’s I/O controllers have to be used to plug-in second graphics processor. It is also reported that such PCI Express x16 + PCI Express x4 configuration is already supported by Nvidia ForceWare 91.31 drives.
