    I havent heard anything reciently but they should be out by the end of the year or they will loose even more market share than they already are. I'd still stick with nVidia at this point though ;)

    The Radeon line has had a hard road with regards to SLI, but I have heard that DFI has put together a mainboard that can handle this task. Reseacrh it, though, since I don't recall where I heard the scoop so can't give you any links to verify the info.

    Radeon cards will not support SLI, period. ATI is coming out with its own form of SLI by a different name, but the currently-available cards will not be able to support SLI, ever.

    ATI's version of SLI will be called "Crossfire" if they ever get it to market! It aapears as though they're having problems with it.

    It's working and will hit be available soon, but I can't see it being of any use until ATI net generation of cards come out. Maybe some fanboys will insist on running dual X850XT or X800XTs but nVidia's 7800GTX will outperform them and SLIed 6800Us. There just aren't very many situations in which either technology is useful right now.
