For the excellent component of the final decade, there has only been 2 major players in the discreet graphics field, and as one of those players, nVidia requires no introduction. The graphics processing unit producer has stayed at or near the forefront of technological advances by the years. Although there has been a misstep or 2 along the path, you usually can look something well to emerge from their R&D labs. And we are not speaking strictly about the company's graphics processing units. They have too been a major player in the chipset business with their so successful nForce products.
As time proceeded onward, the nForce chipset has grew and evolved to the point that it is just regarded one of the "must-haves" for enthusiasts. nVidia had, in effect, began a nice small niche for themselves beginning with the nForce 4
SLI boards. These boards not only were functioning on the similar level or excellent then their competition, but they extended up the first taste of double-video card setups, of course using nVidia's own graphics cards. It was a win-win location for nVidia. Without so many other choice to select from, a possible purchaser was expecting at buying a CPU board and 2 video cards, all from nVidia's stable.
The GA-VIIIN-SLI is packaged in an large box finish with vast image that screen the several characteristics of the CPU board adding the Quad PCIe ports and RAID forms. Too on screen in a little window was a Bluetooth USB dongle that permits for instant links to any Bluetooth enabled machine.
From that point, the bunch comprises of generally awaited paraphernalia, but with a some oddities as good, few of which are specifically tuned to the GA-VIIIN-SLI. For starters, there are three sets of brackets utilized to supplement the links on the board itself.
