NVIDIA today announced that its SLI Certification and Logo Program is currently up and running. SLI technology will enable two PCI-Express video cards to work together in a desktop system to increase graphics performance.
The company has also introduced its new certification program to validate all third-party system components used in an SLI system to ensure compatibility across all the possible video card and motherboard product combinations.
Component manufacturers will be allowed to use an ‘NVIDIA SLI Ready’ logo with products that have passed the certification process. System builders who use SLI Ready products and pass thermal, shock, power, and vibration testing will be allowed to display an ‘Nvidia SLI’ logo.
The first components with the ‘SLI-Ready’ logo will appear later this month, with the systems appearing in volume around December.
