Nvidia nForce 780i board

Nvidia has introduced a new nForce motherboard, the 780i. Like the 680i, the 780 is able to link an unusual three Nvidia cards together in SLI mode, resulting in performance up to 2.8 times faster than a single card; this is purportedly enough to play Crysis with maximum detail at 1900x1200, or Call of Duty 4 at 2500x1600. The 780i is specifically tailored to Intel's Yorkfield (QX9650) processor, which is rated at 3GHz and has a 1.33GHz front-side bus.

The 780i is also geared to meet Intel's new Enthusiast System Architecture, intended for the likes of high-end gamers. No prices or release dates are currently available, but a number of PC and motherboard manufacturers are said to be lining up to incorporate 780 technology, including ASUS, HP, Hypersonic, Falcon Northwest and Voodoo PC.
