Posted on Monday, July 14 2008 @ 15:35:13 CEST by


NVIDIA today officially announced it will bring SLI technology to the Intel Bloomfield processor platform. The firm will roll out a chip called nForce 200 SLI processor - the same one as one the Skulltrail platform - and rumour has it that NVIDIA will charge motherboard makers about $30 to use this chip on Intel X58 based motherboards.
PC enthusiasts, manufacturers, and developers around the world have a lot to be excited about today with NVIDIA Corporation's announcement that it will be bringing the power and performance of its SLI multi-GPU technology to Intel's upcoming line of Bloomfield CPUs. With this winning combination, consumers will have an SLI platform designed for current and future graphics-intensive games and applications; these platforms can be powered by one, two, or even three NVIDIA GeForce GPUs, including the new, award-winning GeForce GTX 280 and GTX 260 GPUs.

New SLI motherboards will feature the NVIDIA nForce 200 SLI processor, Intel Bloomfield CPUs, and Tylersburg (X58) chipsets. The nForce 200 SLI processor features patented SLI technology for graphics bandwidth management and multi-GPU peer-to-peer communications, both required to optimize graphics performance.

"With GeForce-based visual computing application, our customers are experiencing exciting new ways to interact with their photos and videos while also experiencing the bone-chilling realism from our latest graphics processors," said Jeff Fisher, senior vice president of GPU business at NVIDIA. "Our SLI technology allows us to combine the power of hundreds of GeForce processing cores in multi-GPU configurations with Intel's latest CPUs for platforms that are sure to excite our customers."
NVIDIA says motherboards and PC systems with the nForce 200 SLI processor will be available from Acer, Asus, Atelco, Coolmod, Dell, Ditech, Falcon Northwest, Founder, Fujitsu-Siemens Computer, Gigabyte, Haier, Hypersonic PC, Iqon/Commodore, K&M, Komplett, Komputronik, Legend, Maingear, Medion, MSI, Multirama, Next, Scan Computers, Sky Electronics, Tongfang, TS, Velocity Micro, Vigor Gaming, and more.
