ATI takes on Nvidia SLI with the Crossfire
ATI announces its dual graphics card solution dubbed Crossfire. ATI Crossfire is the answer to Nvidia’s SLI technology. A ATI CrossFire setup requires a ATI Radeon Xpress 200 Motherboard, a CrossFire Graphics card and another card with the same flavor GPU. CrossFire will initially appear in two boards: the Radeon X850 CrossFire Edition and the Radeon X800 CrossFire Edition. The former will only work with other X850-based boards, specifically the Pro, the XT and the XT Platinum Edition models.
