Hoo-ray! The only thing stopping me buying a second GTX 580 was the lack of official support for SLi on my ASUS AMD motherboard.

Well nVidia/GeForce is set to change that with the inclusion of SLI support in the next generation of AMD motherboards developed by ASUS, Gigabyte, ASRock and MSI.

In the last monthly hardware survey by Steam, it was revealed that ninety-three percent of all multi-GPU systems were using SLI (Over CrossFire), so it was a bit of a no-brainer to include SLI support giving the consumer and enthusiast more options.

One of the first AMD designed motherboards to include SLI capabilities will be the upcoming Republic of Gamers Crosshair V Formula ASUS board.

  1. When I read Nvidia’s release this afternoon it answered a few questions for me. A friend of mine was going to build a mid to high range budget PC. Which can mean low end Intel or high end AMD. He went with Intel since AMD’s boards had no true SLI, only that hybrid crap. Nice to finally see the new reason. If EVGA makes and AMD board, my next rig will have it. :)
