When ATi announced their new CrossFire multi-GPU rendering technology months ago, it could have been viewed by many enthusiasts and the market as more of a reactionary response to NVIDIA's SLI multi-GPU technology than anything else.  When our preview showcase article was posted, hardware was still months away from being a reality and since then, only bits and pieces have leaked out on performance expectations.  Regardless, what looked good then on paper, certainly needed to be taken with a grain of salt and a dash of skepticism, since frankly no one could be certain of product performance claims without hardware in hand.  All the while, NVIDIA's SLI product offering and the all-important...

Good morning all. Did everyone have a nice weekend? I hope so. I spent most of my weekend building up and tinkering with a new test rig that'll get abused for an upcoming article. Can't tell you much about it just yet though! :)  I can tell you about the news though, which has been flowing in at a steady clip all weekend.  Check it out...  An Update on Crossfire Limitations @ PenStar Systems: "On a standard video card, like the Radeon X800 series, the chip itself has two internal RAMDACs running at 400 MHz (for higher end cards), as well as a TMDS that runs at 165 MHz which can power LCD's up to 1920x1200 @ 60 Hz using reduced blanking techniques.

Today we learned about an error within our ATi CrossFire article that frankly was the result of some misinformation provided to us by ATi regarding AA image quality comparisons. Please check out our update here and draw your own conclusions.  We hope this update serves as a reminder to always take vendor-provided information with a grain of salt, as we've stated numerous times in this article and many times in the past in previous articles, especially launch "previews" where we do not have access to hardware for our own testing purposes. What fun for a Friday... Best Regards, Dave Altavilla Editor In Chief... Read more...

At this year's E3 show ATi was discretely showing their new multi-GPU rendering technology which until now has been held under wraps of the standard NDA embargos we've come to know and love here in the industry.  Last week we were given a full briefing on the technology by the ATi team and were told sometime in the month of June, product should be available in the retail channel.  However for now, we can give you full details on the features and underlying technology in ATi's new CrossFire products with this pre-launch showcase, which we will follow-up of course, with a full performance preview once we get product in our lab for hands-on testing.
