    You can even get 16-SLI! :eek:
    It only requires four of these babies:

    There are more solutions out there with 4 GPU's or more. Used for simulators and the likes.

    Yeah, but those are modern: this thing was in 2000!

    How long until we see proper Quad-SLI? Not just the GX2 stuff, but 4 GTX 2x0 cards. That would be nice.

    Negative, for instance I remember a quad 9800, was a huge card though. Not available for consumers of course. And there of course was the Fury Maxx, which had two GPU's and was available to consumers.

    Also, that Voodoo is quad SLI on a single board, you can't team them with 3 more. For instance, there are no consumer boards with multiple AGP ports. The standard didn't even support multiple AGP ports back then. (support was added in 3.0, though never utilized)

    the best way 2 get a laught is 2 go 2 google and type the name of a very old p.c. part (i.e intel p-3)
    With lests say some thing new i.e ge-force 9800gt.
    you all ways find a chat room with some one geting mixtup with hardware.

    Well, I'll admit I was wrong about the Voodoo 5 6000 part, unless there are PCI versions available.
    However, you could still get Quad-SLI with the Voodoo 5 5000! Two GPU cores per board, and PCI bus instead of AGP.
    As for the Fury Maxx, thats not nearly as cool as the Voodoo 5 6k...
    And I can't find anything on that Quad 9800.

    And keeping on the topic of terribly mis-matched hardware, we have one from New Zealand:

    Quantum3D put out systems with 4, 8, and 16 3Dfx VSA-100 chips (what's used on the Voodoo 4500/5500/6000).

    I remember drooling over these back then :)

    Wait, so are those the chips arranged in two squares, and then the middle chips are interconnects? If so, that's fucking awesome! They need to do that with a bunch of g200's and put a TEC on each of the chips :rockout:

    If Nvidia ever does something like this, they'd better start giving away mini nuclear reactors with the purchace of 3 or more high end video cards.
