On the next few pages we'll show you some photos. The images were taken at 2560x1920 pixels and then scaled down. The camera used was a Sony DCS-F707 5.1 MegaPixel.
XFX Technology was kind enough to send in three 8800 Ultra's for the test. Yeah ... that's 1800-2000 bucks right there. To your left you can see the new 3-way SLI connector.
Well, I just like odd photography. Can I hear an "Ooh" please ?
Once installed and alive in the test system. Three Ultra's plus the SLI connector clearly visible.
Slightly different angle. Please don't mind the lousy wiring ...
Okay one more, but that's it. Let's peek a little at performance.
If you had a close look at the 8800 GTX & Ultra, you'd notice there's a second SLI finger (connector) and to date there has been a lot of speculation about that extra connector, to name one .. it could have been an extension for physics over a third card. The truth is often to be found in the most simple and logical solution, it was all about SLI from the get go. If you have one of these rather expensive cards you can now link up three cards and enable 3-way SLI.
