Crossfire and SLI got you down? Try SDGE!

Subject: Graphics Cards | October 18, 2005 - 05:33 PM |

CoolTechZone looks at ECS's SDGE, their answer to ATI and nVidia.  It is incredibly adaptable, running 

mixes like PCIe x16 + PCIe x4, PCIe x8 + PCIe x8, PCIe x16 + PCIe x16.  Also, in the future more combos may be included, like PCIe x16 + AGP Express, AGP 8x + PCIe Express, Integrated Graphics + AGP Express and Integrated Graphics + PCIe Graphics..

"While the hybrid motherboard concept is all well and good, ECS is back with another technology

that's worth analyzing. Welcome ECS' SDGE, or Scalable Dual Graphics Engines, technology. The

basic concept behind SDGE is to combine the functionalities of NVIDIA's SLI and ATI's Crossfire

technologies to come up with an in-between solution. Though it's tough to prove without actually

testing the technology, but you would logically expect something like this to also have more

complications than any of us would like, but let's go through SDGE and see where it stands as

opposed to SLI and Crossfire."
