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

NVIDIA sent us these benchmarks a couple days ago, and since they are up and about on the web already, we were allowed to go ahead and post them. In addition to this table, I can personally vouch for the D3 and Halo numbers as I was in the room when the results were run and confirmed.
