Quad SLI for DIYers
NVIDIA has officially released its WHQL certified ForceWare 91.45 drivers for Quad SLI technology. The drivers were previously available in beta form on NVIDIAâ€™s nZone site. The new drivers are placed under a new Quad SLI section instead of the usual GeForce and TNT2 driver section. Interestingly enough the latest ForceWare 91.45 only supports GeForce 7950GX2 graphics cards. Users with 7900GX2 graphics cards will have to wait for drivers from respective system builders such as Alienware, Dell, Velocity and other manufacturers of early Quad SLI systems.
