SLi Share Vram?

I previously heard that SLi does not share vram from the two cards being used. ex: 8800 gts 512 SLi does not use 1 gb vram only 512. Is this still true?

    Do SLI or CrossFire double the memory ?
    This is one the questions that many people make mistake understanding it .
    The answer is NO , SLI or CrossFire doesnt double the memory , You have a 512MB card , adding another card wont make your memory 1GB, it still will be 512MB
    Another example :
    A game needs 512MB card to run at maximum settings , and you have a 256MB card , and you think if you add another 256MB card , your memory will be 512MB and thats not true.

    You may see this mistake in many sites.
