NVIDIA SLI Patch For Any Motherboard

The NGO Patcher adds several INFs to your Windows configuration -- the result should enable SLI in your NVIDIA toolbar
Dying to give SLI a try but don't have quite the right motherboard? A new patch might give you a sneak peak
A few days ago we reported on
the leaked ULi driver patch
that enables SLI on any Detonator driver if the patch finds a ULi Northbridge. ULi (ironically
) created the patch to work with existing and future NVIDIA drivers -- other similar hacks required the use of ancient drivers to work correctly.
A few people were able to take our advice and create
a patcher from the ULi INF
files. The result? SLI on any platform, no matter what the chipset (just so long as you have two PEG adaptors).
Several motherboards have multiple PEG slots, but without the SLI license from NVIDIA, those motherboards have never been sanctioned to run SLI mode. Motherboards that currently have multiple PEG adaptors but are not authorized to run in SLI mode include:
NVIDIA nForce4 Ultra
NVIDIA nForce4 4X
Feel free to give these chipsets a try and report your success.

But is it worth it?

This opens the door for one last benchmark which could really show off some core logic tweaking - let's fire up a pair of 7800s on an RD580 and stack it against a good ol' SLI-32 mobo, and again with an RD480 against a standard SLI.
I think everyone already knows that the I/O functions (particularly the USB) are better on the nVidia offerings, but this would be a good chance to test a lot of other features head-to-head.
