“EVGA is continuing its tradition of bringing true enthusiast platforms to the market following the success with NVIDIA nForce-based SLI motherboards supporting Intel CPUs,” said Joe Darwin, Director of Technical Marketing at EVGA. “By licensing NVIDIA SLI technology, the EVGA X58 motherboard will deliver the ultimate 2-way and 3-way SLI platform to, once again, meet the enthusiast’s demand.”

This is the first time EVGA will not be using an Nvidia chipset.

wishful thinking

but I think I have seen boards that can fit 4 GPUs.

something like this
(I know its workstation)


I think I saw foxconn has something similar but for desktop, not sure

keep in mind I don't want actually want the cards to be connected, for folding you need them to work separately

Oh right... same concept like that one video I saw about reconstructing skeletons at super fast pace (through a scanner of sorts, they used a lego man to emulate the situation), because they stuck 4 GX2s into their computer.  And.. it worked!

And such a setup was alot cheaper than an actual medical computer Thumbs%20Down

So wait, you can't have 3 GTX 280s in SLI or something?

you can have 3 GTX 280 in triple SLI.

Gigabyte and Foxcon both have boards with 4 pci-e x16 slots.

Oopsie, my bad I know that you can have Triple SLI I meant.

"You can't have 3 GTX 280s in Triple SLI where it would benefit [email protected]"?

How come there's not even plans for Quad SLI with 4 GTX 280s anyway...

It'd be more convenient just to have GX2 280s or something... but uhh yeah lol.

For folding no in sli the clients can't run each GPU independently which then will create big problems, so for folding, you don't want the GPUs connected.

I should have never used quad sli, that was the wrong term for it.

There are very few power supplies that can support quad SLI (we talking 1500W+) and even fewer motherboards that will be able to fit four GTX 280s.

Nvidia has already tried quad-SLI with the 7950GX2 and 9800GX2. Both failed because we don't have the CPU power yet to utilize 4 GPUs nor the games (except crysis). 4870X2 in Crossfire fails in comparaison to tri-SLI GTX 280 due to our CPU limitation.

Ah I see.  Wait didn't CPU overclocking, fixed the CPU bottleneck when it came to Quads anyway?  (Or any high end combination of GPUs anyway)  I understand you'd want a stock rate CPU to handle it...  4.0 Ghz helps get past the CPU bottleneck I believe right?

As for the power supply issue.
