The new motherboard with two SLI'd GF6800s was running Unreal Engine 3 smooth as can be, with the occasional crash. I would put the drivers at 'slightly immature' level, but the HD video ran great. It was set to come out in a nebulous 'near future' or 'next quarter', but since it was up and running now, it can't be that far off.
The rest of the presentation was more or less a rundown of their driver features, firewall, clocking down for noise, up for speed, and RAID. The RAID part was the most interesting one, with a demo of the graphical features of drive failure. Unplug a drive, and the graphic pops up with the formerly green drives going yellow for decreased performance. Swap in the hot spare, and they go green in real time. No mention of rebuild times, but it was neat.
The take home message, NF4 for Intel is up and running now, no details yet, but soon. All the features of the NF4 on AMD made the transition as well. SLI is coming to the P4 and it couldn't come soon enough. µ
