NVIDIA SLI Connector - Overview

NVIDIA SLI Connector

 

Features and Specifications

The NVIDIA SLI Connector (55Y8963) provides dynamic scaling of graphics performance, enhancing image quality by combining two selected NVIDIA Quadro graphic cards by uniting them as a single graphics card within a ThinkStation system. Feature and benefits include:

  • SLI Frame Rendering:
    • Combines two PCI Express graphics cards with an SLI connector to transparently scale application performance on a single display by presenting them as a single graphics card to the operating system.
      • Visual simulation, broadcast, and video applications that are fill rate-limited will benefit from using the split frame rendering (SFR) mode.
      • SPECviewperf ® 9 and other applications that are geometry-limited will benefit from using the alternate frame rendering (AFR) mode.
  • SLI FSAA (Full Scene Anti Aliasing):
    • Combines two PCI Express graphics cards with an SLI connector to transparently scale image quality on a single display by presenting them as a single graphics card to the operating system.
      • SLI FSAA increases the FSAA level up to 32X to remove jaggies from contours of geometries in real time
      • Design review and digital mockup (DMU), Visual simulation, broadcast, and video applications that require high level of FSAA will benefit from using the FSAA mode.
