with alienwares new tech "SLI" where you can add 2 video cards of the same speed/ manufactorer...my question is how will overclocking work? Since each card is different, 1 wouldnt be able to go as high as the other... so, will this bring an end to SLI from the extreme enthusiast market or the end of vga overclocking?

 

On paper SLI looks great, if you search for Alienwares ALX (i think) machine.. the video graphics get around a 50-70% improvement, since 1 video card only controls half the moniter...

 

just had this in my head for a bit, and wanted to know what you guys thought of it..

I'm not sure how well overclocking would go over with Alienware's solution. But I think overclocking would be fine with Nvidia's solution, since each video card doesn't have a fixed screen size to render. In Nvidia's solution, the drivers adjust how much of the screen each card renders in real-time, so if one card was overclocked it should just get more of the screen to render. But I think you would run into problems overclocking with Alienware's solution.
