* NVidia reintroduces SLI?

Why do I have a bad feeling about this?

SLI, back in the days of the Nvidia/3dfx wars, was always touted by 3dfx proponents as an "amazing" thing, something that blew away the competition... and it did, to a point.

Then the NVidia cards caught up. And SLI didn't exist for the Voodoo3 line, nor did the Voodoo4/Voodoo5 line do well with it due to how the onboard-SLI situations made the cards too expensive to produce.

Now Nvidia's at it again, perhaps bolstered by Alienware's experimental version.

Ouch. SLI was nice and all, but for its time it proved bad; taking two obsolete cards to get decent performance (but performance that was quickly outdone by the newer cards) didn't quite work out.

Time for an editorial, I think.
