Alienware has issued a statement towards yesterdays announcement of Nvidias SLI. If in fact Nvidias SLI is faster than Alienwares VideoArray, the company is willing to swallow its pride to offer SLI. Still you have to wonder how much money Alienware has put into its VideoArray technology.
"Should Nvidias SLI technology ultimately prove faster than Alienwares Video Array, we will offer it to our customers as soon as it becomes commercially available," stated Frank Azor, senior vice-president and general manager of Alienwares Worldwide Product Group. "Either way, we will continue to develop and optimize Video Array for all non-Nvidia graphics solutions, such as those from ATI, 3D Labs, Matrox, and any other manufacturers. Our sole interest is in offering technology that provides the very best computing experience possible to Alienware customers."
