NVIDIA spreads word that Intel and leading motherboard makers, including ASUS, EVGA, Gigabyte, and MSI, have all licensed NVIDIA SLI technology for inclusion on their Intel P55 chipset based motherboards for Intel's Core i7 and Core i5 processors using the LGA1156 socket.
"NVIDIA SLI technology is a perfect complement to the processing prowess of our new Core i7 and Intel DP55KG desktop board," said Clem Russo, VP and General Manager of Intel Client Board Division at Intel Corporation. "NVIDIA and Intel share a combined passion for furthering the PC as the definitive platform for gaming, and this combination will surely be attractive to anyone building or purchasing a brand new PC this fall."
As a result of today's announcement, NVIDIA SLI technology is now available for all consumer PC platforms, including the Intel Core i7, Core i5, Core 2 Quad and Core 2 Duo processors, as well as those based on the AMD Phenom II CPU. In addition to raw graphics performance, NVIDIA GeForce GPUs also provide gamers with additional capabilities not found on any other discrete graphics solutions, including NVIDIA PhysX technology for deeper gaming immersion, and stereoscopic 3D gaming with NVIDIA 3D Vision(TM) technology.
"Only the best-designed motherboards are capable of tapping into--and reaping maximum benefits from--the powerful synergy between SLI technology and the P55 platform," said Joe Hsieh, General Manager of ASUS' Motherboard Business Unit. "ASUS has honed the art and science of motherboard design with the ASUS P7P55 Deluxe and ROG Maximus III Series motherboards, which deliver unparalleled performance and stability."
