HardwareAnalysis is running an article on nVidias plans to revive the SLI technology with the GeForce 6800 series graphics cards:
To date no manufacturer has come up with a similar concept simply because modern graphics accelerators are all AGP based, there's no dual AGP motherboards and PCI simply doesn't have the bandwidth to handle modern graphics accelerators. With the arrival of PCI-E things have changed though, a number of workstations motherboards featuring the Tumwater chipset will have dual PCI-E-x16 slots making dual graphics accelerators a possibility again. Nvidia steps up to the plate today with the re-introduction of the SLI concept on the GeForce 6800 series, again using the SLI moniker but now with a different approach to the same principles that made Voodoo2 SLI a huge success.
