BAD NEWS FOR THOSE hoping to pick up one of the new G92-based 8800 GTS cards - despite the co-incidental revealing of 3-way SLI around the same date from the green team, the new board won't actually support it.
We saw the first pictures of the reference boards at the tail end of last week, and now OCW has quite rightly pointed out that, without the dual slot connector, there will be no hot 3-way action for the GTS.
Whilst Nvidia reckons that Tri-SLI can be achieved over the PCI-E bus, that's going to be a slow and buggy solution for the foreseeable future.
In the short term, at least, it seems that 3-way is going to be restricted to the 8800 GTX and Ultra. Can you imagine the mortgage required for three Ultra cards? We'd rather not. µ
