DualGFX K8T890 Pro in SLI? Posted on 20/05/2005 at 14:16 by Marc
VIA just made an intriguing press release about the DualGFX technology. So far this technology as it was implemented in the PT894 Pro gave access to two PCI Express x16 slots with one cabled in 4x to use two graphic cards. This technology wasn’t compatible with the NVIDIA SLI and VIA advanced the possibility to use two graphic cards for multi display.

The graphic cards used in this demonstration hasn’t been specified but our colleagues from x-bit labs took a picture of the computer including two GeForce 6600 GT in SLI. We don’t know however if performances provided are equivalent to the nForce4 and if NVIDIA will still leave the possibility in their drivers to activate the SLI with the K8T890 Pro. The K8T890 Pro could be released during the Computex early June.
