NVIDIA representatives notified its board partners this week that its new Hybrid SLI technology has been delayed. NVIDIA’s Hybrid SLI technology offers an innovative new method to improve power management and performance. However, motherboard vendors will have to wait to implement the new NVIDIA feature.
The basics of Hybrid SLI aren’t very difficult to understand. The term itself envelopes two different NVIDIA technologies, GeForce Boost and HybridPower. GeForce Boost allows for a single discrete NVIDIA graphics card to be paired with an NVIDIA motherboard’s integrated graphics. HybridPower, on the other hand, dynamically adjusts graphics speed, noise and power consumption according to the task at hand.
The delay notification reads, “We are still experiencing delays in getting the kits sent as the product is experiencing delays, drivers are being fine-tuned and sales tools are being finalized.”

Despite the fact that NVIDIA “launched” Hybrid SLI during CES in January, and has continued to push Hybrid SLI to the media in EVERY DAMN meeting, it looks like NVIDIA’s technology is going to be pushed out several months. This is very unfortunate considering their competition at AMD has had Hybrid CrossFire up and running since December and was launched with the 780G chipset earlier this month.
