Description of SLI Bridge


The Scalable Link Interface (SLI) bridge is a simple, small circuit board which comes packaged with SLI-ready motherboards.

The bridge has a connector on each end that attaches to the top edge connectors of SLI-ready video cards. In this way, the board bridges the two video cards. This mechanism is used to join two identical video cards together for information exchange when used in an SLI configuration (Figure 1, 2 and 3).

The SLI bridge is included with all SLI-capable systems shipped by Alienware, regardless of the video card or cards selected at the time of purchase.
