It's amazing that Nvidia still markets multi-GPU support as "Scan-Line Interleave" on an era where CRT screens have been all but abandoned.
Technically NVidia changed the acronym to "Scalable Link Interface" when they reintroduced the concept in 2004 since it then predominantly used Alternate Frame Rendering which is of course a very different approach (Original Voodoo SLI was a form of SFR as you can probably guess from the name).

You are right. I have updated the article to clarify things. Thanks for the info.

Don't see how that is relevant. That would be like me commenting on one of your hobbies "you have two much time on your hands"

So you are a Warhammer fan and it's all downhill from there?

Never tried Warhammer miniatures. There is a Warhammer shop in Belfast, nobody I know wants to try it out. That said, I am not a fan of Age of Sigmar lore-wise.
