Nvidia SLI Licensed For Intel Core i7, i5 Platforms

Excited for the upcoming Intel Lynnfield platform curious what you'll do with your GeForce SLI setup? Worry no more, as Nvidia announced that it has licensed its SLI technology to Intel as well as other motherboard manufacturers, including ASUS, EVGA, Gigabyte, and MSI for inclusion on their Intel P55 Express Chipset.

Soon you'll be able to grab a P55 motherboard and pair it with a Core i7 or i5 processor in the LGA1156 socket along with an Nvidia GPU set up to quad-SLI.

"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 GM of Intel client board division at Intel. "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."

  • You sure about that? Maybe they have a new revision coming out based on the new socket. Hmmpf.. anyway, could you imagine? Quad SLI with 2 GTX295's and an overclocked extreme i7 with 4 SSD's raided and a Bluray Burner? Oh yea, with a 30" monitor as well. 1500watt PSU plus 30" monitor = electricity bill.

    Intel is actually branding the high end LGA1156 socket chips as i7, since the 2 highest end LGA1156 chips should have performance superior to the current i7 920. So, I don't see any flaw in this statement.
