It looks like it might be in some form, but there must be some optimizations that were done.

NVIDIA was able to shrink the PCB down to 9" with the GeForce GTS 250, and in the process eliminate one of the GeForce 9800 GTX+'s 6-pin supplemental PCI Express power connectors. That would lead you to believe the GeForce GTS 250 consumes less power than the 9800 GTX+. And you'd be right. While both idling and under load, the GeForce GTS 250 consumes about 20 - 45 fewer watts than the older 9800 GTX+.

Hmm... It still has 2 SLI fingers, so it must be possible to do 3 way SLI on these.
