Basically, if you can run 4xAA with 1 card at 120fps, SLIAA allows you to run 8xAA at the same framerate. Each card renders a different 4x MSAA pattern, and they are combined at the end to produce an image with 8xAA quality. You do not gain any fps, buy you also do not lose any fps (little overhead at the end).

@ChrisRay: Is the standard SSAA 2x2 mode supported now under SLI AA ?
