Snip: The Epox 9U1697 GLI motherboard that’s passing through the PCSTATS test labs today is based on ULi’s last chipset which was quite a sleeper, the M1697. Make no mistake about it, the Epox 9U1697 GLI motherboard is inexpensive but that doesn’t mean it’s a slow motherboard! Now here is the tricky part – while there are two PCI Express x16 slots on the Epox 9U1697 GLI motherboard, they do not officially support nVIDIA SLI or ATi CrossFire. Dual videocards can be used for multiple 2D displays, like for workstation style applications – but that’s it. Now that nVIDIA owns ULi, it’s possible that it may eventually certify the ULi chipset as SLI compatible, but that is something you shouldn’t bet on.
