NVIDIA Big Bang II brings more speed, SLI on X58 and multi-display SLI

Posted on Tuesday, October 21 2008 @ 17:36:23 CEST by

The launch of NVIDIA's Big Bang II GeForce 180 drivers is coming near. Tech ARP published some slides from NVIDIA which detail the features of these new drivers. Here's a quick overview of what Big Bang II will offer:
  • Faster gaming performance. NVIDIA claims a GeForce 9800 GTX+ will gain more than 5-35% in various games with the R180 drivers.

  • NVIDIA SLI on the Intel X58 chipset, but only if the motherboard makers pay NVIDIA for the license to do so. ASUS, MSI, Gigabyte, DFI and leading OEMs hopped aboard and ECS, Foxconn and EVGA will follow soon. The nForce 200 SLI processor will only be required for certain high-end applications.

  • Support for multi-display SLI

  • Dedicate a GPU to PhysX
  • The first beta version of GeForce 180 is available now, not all the new features are functional yet but a fully-functioning WHQL driver release is expected on November 17, 2008.
