i feel bad for AMD's cpu division now. i felt pretty bad for them before but this puts the icing on the cake. either way, i would still build a bloomfield computer with AMD GPU's. just imagine pc game publishers marketing on games saying that it works best with AMD and Intel logos on the package.

I thought the X38 and X48 chipsets already had SLI, since they have 2 PCI-Express x16 slots.

Shocking news, really. Lately, NVIDIA has been acting like a rogue in the tech industry. Cooperation between NVIDIA and Intel right now is completely unexpected especially how it could damage nForce chipset sales and bolster Intel chipset sales.

Yes it will hurt sales of motherboards with Nvidia chipsets, but it also might boost sales of videocards, as some people may have went with Crossfire or a single graphics card due to the lack of SLI support on Intel chipsets. I, for one, have always been a huge fan of Intel chipsets. When I built an Intel CPU-based PC, I use nothing but Intel chipsets. I have used Nvidia chipsets for AMD based builds however. I have found Intel chipsets to be second to none in terms of stability, and overclocking abilities. I would be more likely to go with an SLI setup now that Intel chipsets support it.
