yeah I heard of SLI, it looks like a good idea, sorta like having dual CPU's but it's GPU's instead
I wonder how much more power it would have, since a dual P3 1.2GHZ easily beats a single P4 3.2GHZ in processing power, even though one P3 1.2GHZ by itself is not half the power of the P4
speaking of multiple CPU's, I heard that the Xbox 2 will have 3, yes three processors!
anyway, do you think Via will try and make their own chipset that supports SLI?
