    CTS - 2006 :: SCAN's Quad SLI draws in the punters

    The punters that were unable to make it to CeBIT this year could take solace in SCAN bringing some of the latest technology to the masses.

    not bad not bad

    Notice how they link Cards 1 and 3 and 2 and 4 together with ribbon cables ? Its like Dual channel just on graphics cards

    Apparently Quad SLi isnt much faster than Dual SLi because the CPU isnt powerful enough to run all 4 cards at full potential (its bottlenecked =[ )

    That's because GPUs 1 & 2, 3 & 4 are already linked.
