Nvidia concedes SLI for Nehalem chips

Nvidia is the first to blink in its standoff with Intel over the terms of licensing each others' wares. The graphics chip maker is conceding support for its multi-GPU technology on Intel's upcoming 'Nehalem' processor platform without getting much contractual love in return.

SLI will be available for Intel's 'Bloomfield' line of Nehalem chips and the accompanying gamer-oriented chipset, the X58. New motherboards catering to Bloomfield CPUs and X58 chipset will use the nForce 200 SLI processor to bridge a maximum of three Nvidia GPUs. Nvidia claims the silicon can provide up to a 2.8x performance boost over traditional single graphic card platforms.
