Nvidia claims that the 3-way SLI delivers up to a 2.8x performance increase over a single GPU system, giving high-end gamers 60 frames per second at resolutions as high as 2560x1600 and with 8x antialiasing.
The heart of a 3-way SLI system is an NVIDIA nForce 680 SLI MCP motherboard and three GeForce 8800 GTX or GeForce 8800 Ultra graphics cards. With 3-way SLI, gamers can take advantage of the power of 384 stream processors, a 110+ gigatexel per second texture fill rate, and over two gigabytes of graphics memory.
Note that the specificic configuration requires a significant budget. This includes $1800 for the GTS or Ultra graphics cards, as well as $300 for a 1200W PSU and of course, a well-ventilated PC box to handle the high geat generated by the three graphics cards during playing. However, 3-way SLI gives gamers the flexibility to scale their graphics processing power with one, two, or three GeForce GPUs, depending on their desired price and system configuration.
3-way SLI systems are available from gaming PC system builders and the components needed to build your own 3-way SLI system are available from leading retailers. For a list of system builders or to see a complete list of NVIDIA 3-way SLI certified components, visit http://www.slizone.com.
