CONSUMER ELECTRONICS SHOW (CES)-LAS VEGAS, NV-JANUARY 05,
2006-NVIDIA Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA) took its acclaimed SLI
technology to a new level today by introducing support for the
industry's first ever Quad SLI-certified PC. Delivering the most
extreme high definition gaming experience available on the PC, Quad SLI
features four of NVIDIA's flagship GeForce® 7800 GTX GPUs with an
NVIDIA nForce®4 SLI X16 motherboard. This revolutionary technology was
introduced today on the forthcoming Dell XPS 600 Renegade, as part of a
keynote presentation by Michael Dell at CES in Las Vegas, NV.

John Medica, senior vice president, Product Group at Dell, stated: "Our
demonstration of the first Quad SLI PC with NVIDIA is a major
technology innovation, that when combined with the Dell XPS 600
Renegade and the new Dell 30-inch flat panel makes true high definition
gaming a reality."

NVIDIA Quad SLI technology allows consumers to:

Run today's hottest games at extreme high definition (HD)
resolutions-including an unbelievable 2560x1600 -- at silky smooth
frame rates


Crank up their image quality with 32x antialiasing and 16x anisotropic
filtering


Maximize their shader and texture settings for a truly immersive gaming
experience

"Today's demonstration of the new Dell XPS 600 Renegade with our Quad
SLI technology takes gaming to new levels," said Dan Vivoli, executive
vice president of marketing at NVIDIA. "The ability to run today's
hottest titles in extreme HD resolutions with all the eye candy turned
on is absolutely amazing. Strap yourself in, because you are in for the
ride of your life."

In addition, NVIDIA announced that Dell will be shipping the
award-winning NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GTX 512 in the Dell XPS 600 PC.

As part of this technology demonstration, the Dell XPS 600 Renegade
Quad SLI PC will be on display in the Dell booth (South Hall # 36521)
and NVIDIA booth (South Hall #36200) at CES 2006, January 5-8th, at the

Each video card is over $900 ?!.. so $4,000 JUST for the video card setup?.. I
think not.

Wouldn't it be $1800? Each card has 2 GPUs (4 GPUs when 2
cards SLI), and you can only install 2 cards. Don't think there is a
mainboard with 4 PCI-E slots.

PS. Does anybody know what happened to the Gigabyte Quad Royal MB? IIRC
it only really provides multuple monitors and cannot provide "double
SLI" - if you know what I mean...
Thanks for that link ! I wonder how loud something like this would be? Damn
that's a lot of hardware sitting in one case! And can you imagine the PS
you'd need to run all those bad boys! Man it should would be great to be
rich. JLC

Well yes, if that means I can get 4 GPUs under the hood then yes I might buy
it. What was your point?
