The ECS PN1 SLI2 Extreme motherboard allows us to run two GeForce 7800GTXs in SLI - the performance boost from that is definitely noticeable. With one videocard, performance is still very good, and the ECS motherboard outperforms the rest of the crowd in the overall portion of this benchmark.

Looking at 3DMark06 results now, it's clear SLI improves performance nicely. The CPU score stays about the same even with SLI enabled because as the name indicates, it's a CPU test.
