Hybrid SLI: at least it’s a good idea Posted on 26/06/2007 at 00:22 by Nicolas

Our colleagues at X-bit labs published some information involving Nvidia’s future Hybrid SLI technology, which consists of using an integrated graphic core and a graphic card. Two functioning modes are planned.
The Power Saving mode, which will permit deactivation when graphic cards use only the motherboard’s IGP, is of interest in terms of power consumption, heat dissipation or noise levels.
On the other hand, the « Max » Performance mode, which will allow the IGP to help graphic cards with the Californian manufacturer’s inexpensive GPUs (entry or mid level) in order to accelerate rendering speeds, makes us smile when we think of the overall power of the GPUs and IGPs in question.
