    I assumed that was an April Fools joke. Glad to see it's real. I'd probably still go AMD for my next GPU but more choice is always appreciated.

    I did as well, thus hesitating posting on that day, but it does seem legit.

    Finally - Nvidia to licence SLI on AMD's upcoming 9xx Chipsets

    Confirmed by Nvidia. This should make a few people happy.. especially those waiting to build a Bulldozer based system..

    Now ASRock need to pull their fingers out and release some 900 series boards! :mad:

    Yeah, funny that. I can't seem to find any mention of multi-card setups in the monthly hardware stats.
