We loved the stories from Brian "Wicked" Wilson (r.i.p.) from Vodoo Exteme and Brain Hook, who was a lead developer on the conversion from Quake to GLQuake.

And when NVIDIA purchased 3dfx, we started hearing from NVIDIA about something call SLI.

ATI then respoded with Crossfire, which was a POS the last time I tested it. Sorry AMD, but Crossfire will ALWAYS be second-rate technology. Invent something that can beat SLI please!

SLI is the way to go for multi-GPU gaming and High Performance Computing (HPC). Intel needs to watch out
