MSI X99A Workstation motherboard gets NVIDIA Quadro SLI certification

MSI X99A Workstation motherboard gets NVIDIA Quadro SLI certification

MSI has announced that its upcoming MSI X99A Workstation motherboard has passed the NVIDIA Quadro SLI certification.

Although it is still based on the Intel X99 platform, the board is built for high-end content creation PCs and those who need better rendering performance. It even carries over certain features from MSI’s existing gaming motherboards, like the Steel Armor metal reinforcements for the PCIe slots.

The NVIDIA Quadro SLI certification means that the board bears the stamp of a proper multi-GPU professional workstation. Content creators can then use multiple GPUs to dynamically scale graphics performance and perform tasks like image quality enhancements or assemble a fully virtualized system.

The board can also be used for virtual reality setups, where individual GPUs are assigned to a specific eye to speed up stereo rendering.

MSI will be rolling out NVIDIA Quadro SLI certification in the coming weeks to even more Intel X99 and Z170 boards, a list of which can be found below:

  • X99A SLI Plus
  • X99A Raider
  • Z170A SLI Plus
  • Z170A SLI
  • C236A Workstation
  • X99A Godlike Gaming Carbon
