We have just learned that Epox have created an SLI board with a difference with its newly announced EP-8NPA SLI motherboard.

There are many SLI motherboards out there that support either Socket 939 Athlon 64's and LGA775 Intel Pentium 4 and Pentium D processors, but until now there has not been an SLI solution for those early adopters who bought the now redundant Athlon 64 Socket 754 CPU's before Socket 939 appeared in retail.

Epox have created the first Socket 754 motherboard supporting SLI, packing an awesome upgrade punch for those who were seemingly stuck with redundant technology.

Somehow the company has managed to merge tscalable gaming performance from NVIDIA's NForce 4 SLI chipset with the single channel Socket 754 CPU's.

The board uses two x8 PCI-Express lanes, and it has all of the features associated with the NForce 4 SLI chipset, minus dual channel memory of course. There are more details on this exciting product on Epox's home page.
