Nvidia Corp. unveiled a new technology that enables multiple Nvidia GeForce 6 Series or Nvidia Quadro graphics cards to operate in a single PC or workstation.

Scheduled to appeal later this year in PCI Express-based PCs and workstations, the Nvidia SLI technology takes full advantage of the additional bandwidth and features of the new high-bandwidth bus architecture.

"There is a category of Nvidia users that will always demand even more extreme graphics performance than what our industry leading solutions currently provide," said K.B. Ng, marketing director at Nvidia Asia-Pacific. "We share their passion for jaw-dropping graphics performance, so we created SLI, an innovative new multi-GPU approach."

The SLI is a patent-pending hardware and software solution that enables system builders to connect two PCI Express-based Nvidia GeForce 6 Series or Nvidia Quadro graphics boards on their PCI Express-compatible motherboards. The technology features an intelligent communication protocol embedded in the GPU and a high-speed digital interface on the graphics board to facilitate data flow. The suite of software provides dynamic load balancing, and advanced rendering and compositing to ensure smooth frame rates and high image quality.
