Exclamation Intel SLI Drivers

Can anyone try this???

http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...d.php?t=113613

Quote:
Here's the modified Nvidia forceware driver v85.96 that enables SLI for Intel chipsets. I'm going to post the link and leave it there for as long as I can or until I run out of bandwidth. I have NOT used this driver so I can't place any guarantees on this. But I'm just trying to make it easier for those of you looking to get SLI on your Intel sigs. Reverse engineering a driver or product is perfectly legal so I hope I don't get any flak from Nvidia. Much thanks to Big_Sam and Coolaler for the driver!

Nice! Wish I had 2 cards to do it with Oh well, the wait for G80 shouldn't be too too long...

I don't use SLI myself (I don't care for it; expensive, cost not worth gain, becomes obsolete fast, compatibility issues, etc, etc, etc.) but I am curious as to why you couldn't do this without that driver? Can SLI only be done on nvidia chipsets or something? If so why would anybody manufacture an intel chipset mobo with two PCI-express x16 slots?

Because a lot of Mobo's using Intel Chipsets such as 975BXB and 965P have two PCI-Express slots installed to run ATI Crossfire. But since AMD has bought ATI, crossfire support on Intel boards will be ending soon, if not gone already. But the thing is, even if You get SLI to work on one of these Intel Core Logic Chipsets, it will only run a SLI x8. At least till Bearlake comes out next year for Quad-Core CPU's, which will have native DUAL x16 SLI Support.

Does it make a big difference if it's running SLi x8 instead of x16? I think some people over at xtremesystems are using these drivers and getting pretty good results.

So, can you confirm - these drivers should allow me to run my 2 x 7950s in my Intel 975XBX in Quad SLI??

There's a little bit of difference in the bandwidth, and it normally makes a difference of a maximum of 7-8FPS in some games, that I've seen. Most often I don't think it's even that much, but there is generally a slight increase in performance.

I wouldn't dare going quad with Intel Chipsets, when isn't even working correctly with nforce 4. So venturing out like that would only cause you misery. The nforce 590 sli capable mobos aren't far off, so I'd recommend waiting.

Is this our only alternative, using unofficial drivers for SLI?

I don't want to use my Conroe at 3GHz or less... I really want it at 3.5GHz+
Man this situation sucks! Best thing would be if nV and Intel would work together and open SLI on Intel Chipsets.
I will bet the farm that Official SLI support comes to Intel boards soon enough.
