Innovative Graphics Technology with Hybrid SLI-HybridPower and GeForce Boost
Users who feel that their discrete graphics cards are not up to par can now make use of the Crosshair II Formula’s support for Hybrid SLI with HybridPower and GeForce® Boost features. The Hybrid SLI is a dual-graphic solution that utilizes the integrated graphics processor to assist discrete graphics cards for boosted performances. It can even save power by switching off discrete graphics while running lower requirement games.
Another graphical advantage of the Crosshair II Formula is its support for NVIDIA’s 3-way SLI in PCI-E 2.0 mode. With a triple SLI setup, three high-end video cards will work efficiently together to deliver smoother, scalable 3D performances – providing high-end gamers higher frame rates per second and better antialiasing.
