Dailytech reports that NVIDIA representatives notified its board partners this week that its new Hybrid SLI technology has been delayed. NVIDIA's Hybrid SLI technology offers an innovative new method to improve power management and performance. However, motherboard vendors will have to wait to implement the new NVIDIA feature.
The basics of Hybrid SLI aren't very difficult to understand. The term itself envelopes two different NVIDIA technologies, GeForce Boost and HybridPower. GeForce Boost allows for a single discrete NVIDIA graphics card to be paired with an NVIDIA motherboard's integrated graphics. HybridPower, on the other hand, dynamically adjusts graphics speed, noise and power consumption according to the task at hand.
The delay notification reads, "We are still experiencing delays in getting the kits sent as the product is experiencing delays, drivers are being fine-tuned and sales tools are being finalized."
NVIDIA goes on to promise that Hybrid SLI samples will reach vendors in the second half of April, which means retail availability has been pushed into late May. The company does not state the reason for the delay.
Cards that currently support Hybrid SLI include the GeForce 8500 GT as well as the GeForce 8400 GS. The chipsets that support Hybrid SLI include the NVIDIA nForce 720a and the nForce 730a.
