EVGA Shows 4-Way GTX 480 SLI
EVGA is currently the only manufacturer to produce motherboards that support 4-way SLI configurations. With the retail release of NVIDIA's GTX 480 and 470 cards coming at the start of next week, EVGA has shown that it is possible to run 4-way SLI with the GTX 480 NVIDIA reference design. The company released pictures of the setup running on its X58 Classified board, something that you would previously have needed EVGA's own special edition GTX 285 to achieve.
The cards are pictured running the Unigine Heaven benchmark, though no performance numbers were released to go with them, so we can only make guesses at what the figures might be like for now. Running four GTX 480 cards side by side like that also looks to be a recipe for some mighty high temperatures, though I suspect if you plan on replicating that then you will be able to afford some water cooling to go with it. Not to mention the monstrous power supply that will be required to run the whole thing.
