    I still think quad SLI, is a total waste of power and money.

    Though does anyone have 2 of these expensive things? I'm curious of the results.

    As I recall Quad SLI was still getting pretty bad yields because its bottlenecked by processors, even with Conroe it is still going to be bottlenecked. I think QUAD Sli is more of a bragging rights type thing.

    Quad-SLI will only be fully unleased with Kentsfield or 4x4.

    It's like... for DX10, NVIDIA will have a worse chip, but the most pwoerful solution for it with Quad-SLI. Same with AMD. Conroe is destroying AM2 right now, but with AM2 you'll be able to have 4x4 allowing the overall most powerful machine but with worse chips, just more of them.

    Until then, Your only real benefit is better AA performance in HD+ resolutions.

    BTW, does anyone know how 4x4 will end up on motherboards? Will AMD make their own chipset? Will it just plug into current chipsets the way RD580 can do 939 and AM2, and just needs new boards?

    Shouldn't Quad-SLI have 8 cards? This looks to me like Dual SLI... I know its not a mistake, but it seems like Nvidias naming scheme is slightly flawed...
