    And from reading through the thread, it doesn't fix all the issues. People are still having troubles.

    There should be another updated more official bios in the future. This was a hotfix.

    Just wondering why it takes this long...

    I mean.
    Is it broken?
    ...yes (that takes 5 minutes to test)
    can it be fixed?
    yes/no? (that should be a question answered within one day by the team that develop the ramdac, right?)

    It doesn't take two weeks to figure out if something can be fixed or not. it's either not worth it or there are not enough people dedicated to it.


    If we have customers which I promise an answer soon and I do not have an answer by tomorrow, the customer is gone...

    My guess is that once we see this thing got fixed, we would see the PS3 supporting this 1080i mode :razz:
    I knew it is not the exact issue related, but it sounds a good recall to me on the same 1080i problem...

    Errr, isn't this an SLI-only problem? In other words, works fine with a single NV GPU of whatever relatively new flavor?

    I did contact Nvidia a few days ago about that and I'll keep you guys informed as soon as I get the final word on it.
    They're not related.
    And, the PS3 has no 1080i "problem", it's just that some games do not output in 1080i, and as such, folks with 1080i only CRT HDTV, that have no built in scalers, have to switch their PS3 games to 480p.
    Sony relies on the developers for selecting the supported output resolutions of the PS3 games, that explains why some games have no 1080i mode.

    Which issue are you talking about? There seems to be a three different ones mentioned in this thread.

    The SLI-issue in the original post.
    The corrupt/crackling/sound corruption issue when using SLI.
    The data corruption for SATA.

    They're working on a bios fix for the SATA issue that is caused by signal timings on Nvidia designed boards.

    The one that the PS3 guy was hoping to fix on the back of the SLI issue. And that was my gentle way of implying something about flying pigs and buttholes. :lol:

    That was why I said I knew it was unrelated... but it somewhat remine me on that :wink:
    Anyway thank you for the following discuss and yes, hopefully, the issue will get fixed by soon for both of them. Just feel great to make you guys a bit :lol: here.

    I think, in general, everyone feels sorry for Chris. I mean, he picks up an issue that has been festering for over a year and he seems to be the only one willing to resolve this. But as the front-end for nVdia Customer Care he also receives the flak for something he's not involved in (don't shoot the messenger.)

    Yes, I completedly agree with you. It is somewhat beyound his respond to do that, but anyway, it is great to hear that he is willing to do so. Tip my hat to him on that too :smile:

    It seems Mr Fox, some Anandtech poster, is now "going to war with nVidia."

    I dunno I'd describe him and his 250 posts as "of" AnandTech. He's not staff. He's some random poster dude.

    Oops, didn't mean to imply he was staff. I'll change that, though to prevent confusion.
