3-way NVIDIA SLI® Technology

Bring your competition to its knees with NVIDIA SLI gear – the powerful combination of an SLI-Ready NVIDIA nForce® motherboard and multiple GeForce® graphics cards. Now with support for three GeForce 8800 GTX or Ultra GPUs operating in 3-way SLI, you can crank up the image quality settings, maximize your resolution, and tilt the scales in your favor with up to a 2.8X performance hike over a single-card rig.

Users can harness the power of GeForce 8800 Series GPUs working in parallel to deliver 384 stream processors, 110+ Gigatexel per second texture fillrate, and over 2 GB of graphics memory for no-compromise gaming performance. 3-way SLI technology means you no longer have to dial back the image quality settings on the newest PC games enabling 60 frames per second at resolutions as high as 2560×1600 and with 8x antialiasing.

With 3-way SLI technology in your arsenal, you’ll be truly ready to play the latest hyper-realistic DirectX 10 games the way they’re meant to be played.
