Default ATI SLI type thing (Alienware)

I saw this on the alienware alx systems a while back. It's basically a video array (like sli) that lets you use two pci-express video cards together (even ati)

i don't know much about it but imagines 2x ati x850 PE.......

http://alienware.com/ALX_pages/main_alx.aspx

if link doesnt work go find it yourself

too bad it costs so much

No, that is SLi. ALienware has not released their video array yet, it is still having WAY to many problems (cause Alienware sucks...) If they can pull it off, it will be cool, but I think it is going to fail... ATi will develop it before they do... nVidia then will upgrade their SLi to the 16X lane system, and beat ATi yet again..... ATi never learns....

i know, i would never have the money either, i just thought it was cool if it was ready now

then we could see some real head to head benchmarks with dual cards from ati and nvidia

Alienware was the first of the latest dual card systems technologies. They bought theirs off of defunk Voodoo while back. A few months later Nvidia announced SLI and then ATI announced plans for their own dual config.
