NVIDIA has made a successful transition of its SLI tech. over to an Intel-based platform. SLI works exactly in the same way it does on a current AMD machine, and performance, if equivalent processors are used, is largely the same as a well-tuned AMD machine. Intel's 955X Express and the nForce4 SLI I.E opens up the market for a vast range of partners to launch pre-SLI'd machines. Expect the likes of Dell, an Intel-only partner, to have a number of configurations ready at short notice.
