Introducing the New NVIDIA 780i Chipset
The NVIDIA 780i Chipset will replace the aging 680i. The 680i was arguably the best chipset for SLI enthusiasts.
However, a lack of Penryn support has rendered the 680i obsolete for new systems with Penryn processors.
Three major benefits the new 780i chipset has over the 680i are as follows:
- Support for Intel’s highly praised Penryn processors
- Support for up to 3 GPUs running in SLI
- Use of the new PCI Express 2.0 slots
The three GPUs offer a reported 2.7 times increase in performance over a single video card.
