    Games on PC already look better than their console counter-parts. That said, if this means the PC versions will be getting more love than they currently do I'm all for it.

    I'm waiting for the "You must have a Uplay account to activate this feature" popup box.

    Nvidia shouldn't keep their confidence about SLI too high, as AMD already overall fixed their microstutter problem in the August beta driver. It has room for improvement but it's overall in good shape.

    At least Nvidia can back up their marketing comments, unlike AMD ;)

    Don't know many people left with AMD multi Gpu solutions, most have sold them and gone nvidia. AMDs fixes arived 12 months after the fact for most high end users.

    I personally only know 4 people with multi-GPU solutions. 2 of them are AMD (one of them being myself), 2 are nvidia, and one of the nvidia setups I think is retired at this point.

    I personally own 2 HD5750s. There are some interesting benefits of doing such a setup that many people don't point out. First of all, you generally get more performance than a HD5870 for a lower price. But one benefit I've come to notice is a single HD5750 is good enough to play most games at medium-high settings at acceptable frame rates. Games that can't take advantage of crossfire are generally less demanding, so you save power and reduce heat by only pushing 1 GPU and not the other.

    For me personally, one benefit of a multi-GPU setup is GPU passthrough in virtual machines. I haven't got around to it yet but I intend to at some point in order to do a multiplayer gaming system on 1 computer. I'll likely use QEMU to do this.

    FFS. Nvidia could have at least paired up with a company that actually cares about PC gaming.

    A rather desperate attempt by Nvidia to remain relevant....after all is said and done most of the money is in console games....the area monopolized by AMD....so most of optimization will be for their architecture.

    Seems like Nvidia are planning more stuff like proprietary physx...but linked to one game developer....that should work well :-/
