Motherboard AMD 900-Series Latest support SLI
Now more than a week after the chipset was released, SLI seems to still not be activated as when Nvidia still has not released drivers that support dual-GPU setup. This problem was revealed by the publication Expreview who tried to review the Nvidia SLI setup on the existence of a new 990FX motherboard powered by AMD's latest chipset.
By using the beta drivers (275.33), the latest available at the website on both the Nvidia GeForce GTX 570 graphics card that has been recognized by the system, but it's SLI can not be activated because the driver does not support it.
The latest stable drivers also do not support this functionality, so users who wish will be able to build a SLI setup using AMD system is apparently still have to wait again until the new drivers released.
When the 900-series chipsets were introduced, many sites that have published numerous reviews 990FX motherboards that run the SLI setup. However, this review itself turned out to use a custom driver (270.77), which indeed has been provided by Nvidia as the drivers testing only.
Another option to run SLI on the motherboard 990FX today is to hack Quadro drivers (275.36) by following the instructions posted by users on the forums Overclock.net.
Based on Nvidia's notice at the end of last April, AMD 900-series chipset reportedly going to present options to setup SLI support for the parties to build solutions that already have an SLI license.
Motherboard, motherboards are built using the 990FX chipset is said to be capable of supporting 3-way SLI setup, whereas the 990X motherboard users can activate the 2-way SLI.
The chipset North Bridge 900-series can be paired with AMD's SB950 South Bridge controller to add support to the six existing 6Gbps SATA ports.
