Using three 8800 Ultras
VR-Zone has scored a screenshot of a three-way SLI setup using three 8800 Ultra cards running on a C73 or 790i based motherboard. This is the first possible proof of Nvidia's new DDR3 enabled chipset up and running.
The site also claims to have run some tests using a Core 2 Duo E6750, but we'd be cautious here, as it seems a little bit too early. Apparently, they used the 167.10 three-way SLI beta drivers under Windows Vista. They claim they got a 26 percent performance improvement in 3DMark06 at 1,920x1,440 with 8x AA and 16x FSAA enabled. Without AA and FSAA the performance improvement was only 5.6 percent.
If these results are indeed the real deal, then we're looking at a lower than expected performance boost from three-way SLI, and you need only to apply if you've got something like a 30-inch LCD and want to play Crysis will everything set on high.
