    just been looking at sli cards and ive seen this
    http://www.slizone.com/object/slizone_quadsli.html
    Now perhaps its me thats little behind but i was under the impression teat dual sli wasnt being properly used yet. Now theres quad :blink

    anyone actually found a use or know anyone who is using this technology yet?

    Is it worth considering for an upgrade (in a comp im thinking of building for gaming - eventually).
    me personally i think this is a little like overkill atm but meh.. please prove me wrong and find some justification :D

    If you like playing benchmark's as opposed to games, then Quad SLI is for you! :)

    Exactly. And you're right that all the bugs aren't worked out of either SLI or Crossfire.

    Quad SLi is an overkill. The current SLi standard(2 video cards) is not even being used to its full potential.

    I concur with Theprof and unless you are upgrading your CPU it's just a waste.

    By the time games are designed to play on Quad Core SLI your CPU architecture will be old!8)
