Default Nforce4 and SLI coming to Intel

Bah! I had heard rumors of this and now I just read this article:

http://www.xbitlabs.com/news/chipset...226084606.html


Intellers will now be able to have nforce4 goodness with SLI capabilities in the future

Meh, I don't much care for SLI anyway. It's a rich boys toy. They need to come up with something more efficient. I want new alien technology damnit!

It's bad enough having socket changes, RAM changes, AGP to PCI-E changes.....that's a ton of money you have to spend just so you can make the change from the previous boards...they've done way too many hardware changes in the last few months and it's just killer for the pocket...and on top of that you gotta by 2 graphics cards? Jeez, breakin the bank

Having SLI nforce motherboards doesn't mean they'll have better processors....

no1's really against, its just that its so expensive to set up...
mobos cost upwards of 300bux.
u need a good cpu to run it
buying 1 graphics card is more than many ppl can afford.

Plus, I've seen that SLI doesn't increase performance by much at all.
