Not so much a review of a specific card, but rather an in-depth discussion on the merics of SLI technology. A very well written first piece to complement your next graphics purchasing decision.
Introduction and Testing Half-Life 2
With HL2 finally available, we spent 14 hours testing it with 9 GPUs and 4 demos to bring you a thorough look into performance on this new, best selling game.

The PCI Express version of this card has been out for a few weeks, but the AGP version has finally also been released. This card seems to be NVidia's successor to the low priced GeForce4 Ti 4200, with a fairly impressive performance boost, of course. If jumping into PCI Express isn't in your plans, but a new videocard is, NVidia may have your answer.
Introduction and Reference Card
NVIDIA finally responds to our requests for a 6600GT card for the AGP market!
Introduction and Card Layout
Asus delivers a 6800 Ultra card with a single slot cooler that may be the last, best AGP card we ever see.

This marks the final step for the world as we prepare for the release of NVIDIA's SLI technology. By the end of next week, the full story will be out and ready on the web as motherboard vendors and graphics card vendors are shipping out their samples to editors and to the system vendors. This certification program will give buyers a quick way to tell if the hardware they are buying is going to work with the SLI setup they might be building. Below are the logos you'll find; "SLI-ready" for systems, motherboards and video cards that support SLI and "SLI" to be used only on c

The arguments FOR SLI technology are beginning to build up as we get more and more bits of information like this. While a new high in 3DMark05 by itself is nothing to get excited about, this is good news for hardcore gamers. (Note: the Asus page seems to be down right now, so the images aren't working at the moment!)

I got an email from a forum reader that pointed me towards the fact that you can configure an Alienware system with SLI graphics cards today. I poked around a bit more and found this informational page announcing that Alienware has support for NVIDIA's SLI graphics technologies.
The system that you can configure uses two 6800 Ultra graphics cards on Intel Xeon processo

Every once in a while, I like to look around the online shops to see whats new in the world of hardware that you can actually BUY and not just read about. Well, this morning I decided to take a look at graphics cards from around the web, and here is some of what I found.
If you are looking for an ATI-based X800 XT card (

Maybe you beleive that Half-Life 2 will be out soon, maybe you just want play through Doom3 again, but this time on Ultra settings. Either way, chances are you need a new video card. Well, if you can't wait, or can't afford a pair of PCI-X cards to run in SLI on a brand new NForce4 board, maybe one of these cards will do the trick. X-bit Labs does a wonderful write up of the ASUS V-9999, which is a great place to start off.
