Bit Tech has just published a follow up article to our in-depth look at Hybrid SLI. In this article, we speak to several Nvidia representatives in order to clarify display support, more details on the nForce 700a mGPU and how the mGPU manages its memory in the various Hybrid modes.
"On Friday, we published a detailed look into Nvidia’s Hybrid SLI technology and, if you’ve read the article, I’m sure you know that there were some questions I had asked that remained unanswered. From my talks with several partners—and also with Nvidia itself—there seemed to be a lot of confusion and nobody really seemed to know exactly what was going on – or at least, couldn’t talk in great detail about the technology at this early stage.
The problem with that was that it left a lot of questions unanswered and it’s hard to understand a technology when there is very little information available on it. After talking in London on Friday afternoon with several Nvidia representatives that have worked closely with the engineers on this project, I am pleased to say that the company has answered almost every question I asked of it.
There were some questions that the guys couldn’t answer themselves; for those questions, I talked on the phone with Drew Henry, General Manager of Nvidia’s MCP business – he was able to answer the questions and provided some vital insight into where Hybrid SLI is going."
