Please resist the urge to muddy the waters with the incorrect term "SLI".

SLI, or Scalable-Link-Interface, is an NVIDIA proprietary term circa 2004 used for their now legacy driver side system of utilizing more than one GPU.

SLI and Crossfire are defunct in the age of vendor agnostic DirectX12 and Vulkan multi-GPU extensions and intel's work is with Vulkan. There is absolutely no connection to "SLI" and it's use in the headline is misleading.

Please stop trying to muddy the waters by crediting Nvidia for coining the term SLI. 3dfx first used it to mean "Scan Line Interleave", in 1998.

I do agree with this point.
