CES 2008: NVIDIA Hybrid SLI, nForce 780a and GeForce 8200Mon, Jan 07, 2008 - 8:00 AM
NVIDIA nForce 780a SLI Features
The NVIDIA nForce 780a SLI motherboard supports 3-way SLI just like the 780i motherboard with the nForce 200 SLI link. All Phenom processors are said to be supported on the 780a, so AMD needs to crank out those Phenom processors as the boards are ready.
New Hybrid SLI-capable products include the upcoming NVIDIA nForce 780a SLI, nForce 750a SLI, and nForce 730a media and communication processors (MCPs) for AMD CPUs, which will be released next month, as well as the new GeForce 8200—the industry’s first micro-ATX motherboard solution with an onboard Microsoft DirectX 10-compliant motherboard GPU. NVIDIA Hybrid SLI notebooks as well as desktop products designed for Intel CPUs will be available next quarter, so NVIDIA will be very busy over the next two months.
