Run SLI on any Chipset
Subject: Graphics Cards | March 2, 2006 - 08:56 AM | Jonathan Hung
It finally happened and I figured it was going to be sooner rather than later. There is now a third-party patch available that allows everyone to run SLI regardless of chipset! The story started with a leaked ULi patch that enabled SLI, then users created their own universal patch. All you need is a motherboard capable of running two PCI-Express graphics cards (i.e. Intel 955X, 975X, XPress 200, XPress 3200, etc.).
If anything, this homebrew software will help increase the sales of NVIDIA cards; so I hope NVIDIA doesn't come down too hard on this patch. If you try this patch, share your success (or failure) in our Video Card forum!
"A few people were able to take our advice and create a patcher from the ULi INF files. The result? SLI on any platform, no matter what the chipset (just so long as you have two PEG adaptors). "
