    Thanks to Nizaris and Timothy for pointing us to a driver update from nVidia, which lists Diablo III amongst the titles now receiving SLI support:

    Added or updated SLI profiles for Battlefield 3, Dead Island, Diablo III, Dragon Age 2, Need for Speed: The Run, and Saints Row: The Third.

    What’s SLI? In a nutshell, this means that supported titles will run super extra if you use two SLI video cards in a compatible motherboard. More info here, or in nVidia’s full SLI FAQ. Given how well the Diablo III beta runs on even low end systems (like mine) this SLI tech is probably irrelevant for any machine that’s new and powerful enough to run it. But hey, no true techie would ever let cold, drab reality get in the way of his hardware upgrade desires.


    Update: Horst and a couple of others point out that 3D won’t just be a a typo for “D3” anymore, since Diablo III is listed as supported by nVidia’s 3D drivers as well.
