“We take a look at NVIDIA’s answer to “true” 3-Way SLI on current Intel X58 chipset equipped motherboards. We all know SLI on X58 was a good thing, but do gamers need to pay for the NF200?”

Too good to be true?
nVIDIA has been spouting a line about “True 3 way SLI” and how without the nForce 200 MCP present on a motherboard, you are not getting the real deal. [H]ard|OCP had a chance to test out an X58 board with the nForce 200 MCP on it and compared the performance to one without the MCP. As you can clearly see in the video and the chart that they have posted there is a difference, though probably not what nVIDIA was expecting. Any takers on a bet about rushed driver revison?
