AMD 4x4 Supports 4 GPU's
Fudo over at The Inquirer reports that AMD's upcoming "4x4" platform will support no less than 4 discrete graphics cards. Here, AMD has called upon NVIDIA for a chipset to power the platform and has been provided with the nForce 680a. This chipset is comprised of a traditional north and southbridge pairing which provides enough PCIe lanes to support 2 PCIEx16 and 2 PCIEx8 slots. Supposedly, the chipset itself is nothing more than two nForce 590SLI chipsets on a single motherboard, though additional features such as hardware router functionality will help keep the hype machine well lubed and running.
