So is it an "official support" thing?
or a matter of mobo companies adding the slots and configuring, where techinically the northbridge doesn't support it?

Isn't SLI owned by nVidia? Couldn't they sue Intel if the northbridge enabled it without paying licensing fees? I don't understand the technology well, but was under the impression that the northbridge controlled the PCI-e slots necessary for SLI.
