    AMD 990FX and 990X chipsets will apparently enjoy official SLI support.

    Could be quite the potent mix of CPU/GPU at a cheapish price point.
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    Hmm, maybe its an 'enemy of my enemy' thing? You hear of Nvida being hostile towards Intel but strangely less so towards AMD...

    Or because they predict Bulldozer to be big and they'd be missing out on a huge market share if consumers were forced to use AMD GPUs only.

    More like. Oh crap we've pissed everyone else off. Lets try hold on to SOME market share other than the mobile world which we've somehow managed to keep intact.

    Seems like someone is finally seeing some sense.

    Its about time they got there collective heads out of there arses and agreed to do adding sli to amd chipsets again. So they hate AMD because of ATI but why lose out on a chance to make more money? Its to there advantage in the long and short run

    I think they a) want to head off lucid and b) might be impressed by bulldozer. If Bulldozer becomes the go-to gaming chip and we now how good AMD CF scaling is, nvidia could have lost a lot of sales.
