           software technology which allows a GPU to render directly to system
           memory leveraging the high transfer rate of PCI Express, instead of
           using local memory on the graphics card;
      --   NVIDIA SLI technology, which allows users to combine the power of
           two graphics processing units (GPUs) in a single PC system for
           scalable graphics performance, enabling a new class of PCs called
           Gaming Supercomputers;
