I believe our regular readers already know that SLI support can be enabled for Intel chipsets if you modify the Nvidia graphics card drivers accordingly. It is pretty hard to find modified versions of the latest drivers, so a lot of computer enthusiasts prefer to be happy with what they've got. Especially, since they may not have had even that if they followed all Nvidia's recommendations :)
The guys from t-break web-site managed to get two GeForce 7950 GX2 graphics cards to work in Quad SLI mode in Gigabyte GA-965P-DQ6 mainboard:
Note that this mainboard is based on Intel P965 chipset so it doesn't officially support SLI, although it has two graphics card slots. Looks like our colleagues from t-break used modified drivers. And looks like they have gone far ahead of the official driver release schedule, if they even managed to get Quad SLI mode working.
They used a Core 2 Duo E6600 (2.4GHz) processor on Conroe core with B0 stepping. This way one of the today's most powerful processor cores was put into the same system with the fastest graphics cards of the year. If the drivers do not interfere, this system will set some very impressive records. Unfortunately, our colleagues didn't reveal any benchmarks just yet and stated simply that ?everything worked fine?
