Hybrid SLI back on track for April, first board released
According to Nvidia Platform Products PR Manager Bryan Del Rizzo, motherboards based on the GeForce Boost-capable GeForce 8200 chipset have already hit stores in some parts of Europe, and they’ll be available in “mass quantity” in April. Nvidia also expects high-end motherboards based on the HybridPower-capable nForce 780a high-end chipset to come out in April, together with Windows Hardware Quality Labs-certified drivers for both GeForce Boost and HybridPower. The GeForce 8200 and nForce 780a are both targeted at AMD processors.
Oddly enough, Del Rizzo says that the GeForce 9800 GX2 is the first board to support Hybrid SLI. To the contrary, it’s been made quite clear numerous times that the 8500 GT and 8400 GS already support the low-end feature.
