3waysli thumb 3 way SLI Tested On nForce 790i SLI Board

As Nvidia is preparing 3-way SLI technology for launch soon, we had some
initial testing results from the 3-way SLI configuration made up of C73 DDR3 (nForce 790i SLI)
reference board with 3 x GeForce 8800 Ultra cards and a Core 2 Duo E6750. Using
the Forceware 167.10 3-way SLI beta drivers on Windows Vista, we need to tune up
the AA/AF to actually see the performance differences between 2-way and 3-way
SLI. We got a 26% improvement in 3DMark06 at 1920×1440 resolution, 8 sample AA
with 16x AA Quality and 16x AF over 2-way SLI. Without AA/AF, we got only a 5.6%
performance boost.

further so we hope to see a bigger FPS boost in latest games which are more GPU
intensive with better multi-GPU support. So make sure you run those intensive
games to high resolutions like 1920×1440 or 2560×1600 etc with all the image
quality settings to the max to enjoy full benefits of a 3-way SLI setup.
