VR-Zone recently learned of a highly anticipated feature of NVIDIAs being implemented with the upcoming 180.10 ForceWare drivers. That feature is of course multi-monitor support whilst in SLi mode, something many users have been wanting the ability to make use of for a long time coming.


It's definitely on its way; a bunch of screenshots of the NVIDIA Control Panel were taken with a beta build of the 180.10s, proving the option is there. However, its still in need of some fine tuning and has limited functionality.
