So soon? I'm skeptical. I'm still waiting for the 3800 X2s to be released, let alone anything above that.

Drago:they are getting their arses handed to them in the graphics and processor market as it stands now.
They've been down before as has Intel... it's only a matter of time before things heat up again IMO!!!
I don't like responding to threads that are over a month old with their last response...But honestly I think AMD/ATI is back on the right track. R700 won't offer better performance than G100 (maybe even g80, since they are stating a 50% boost in performance for r700 over R600). But with the 3870x2 and the mass adoption of crossfire on intel chipsets, plus the crossfire/sli benchmarks, it's easy to see that crossfire scales better than SLI. Even if AMD/ATI don't have the top contender, they do offer multi gpu setups for intel based chipsets, which most new hardware purchasers end up adopting.
As I mentioned in another thread I'm anxious to see how 2 X2s perform in xfire once drivers come out with support in March. Since I've always gone with Intel chipsets this would be a great option.
I've been stating the same thng recover ^_^. I'm dying to see crossfirex optimized benchmarks. IMO, ATI is much better on drivers, so really looking forward to what they can do with a dual 3870x2 solution ^.^
This CrossfireX preview could be a good indication of how it'll perform: http://www.anandtech.com/video/showdoc.aspx?i=3232
Those benchmarks won't be very accurate in march. The drivers are not designed/tuned for CrossfireX, AMD/ATI stated the drivers would be released in march. But atleast that site will leave a good comparison to see the difference between 8.1/8.2 to the CrossfireX drivers. ^_^
