To your knowledge. That would be guessing or little to none, correct?

Just displaying the logo in a for profit environment you had better be paying the lic fee$$$ its a trade marked logo.

Can you prove otherwise? Logo trademarks != chipset implementation licensing. Quit trolling and try and provide some useful information for once.

Off topic> i think? I thought did hence the included link. The software is consider as intellectual property, and as such the logo is its symbol or TM. It gives the software a face, a "marketable label".

See how that works. If Asus was not paying the licensing fee they would not be able to display the logo on the box. At the same time they wouldn't have crossfire software on the motherboard as "PART" of the chipset.

I'm not trolling. I hope this helps.

Logo trademarking does not correspond to licensing a technology like Crossfire or SLI. Displaying the logo and implementing the technology are two entirely separate things. I can't find any sort of documents from AMD/ATi about the tech license, so I assume there is no implementation fee to manufacturers.

But yeah, how come I see on the bottom its has Crossfire X and SLI? Does that mean we get both? I thought it was either SLI or Crossfire X, not both.
Someone correct me if I am wrong but... there are Intel boards that have both SLI and CFX, right? This just means that AMD users get the same option.

Furthermore, I doubt every single 900 series chipset board with 2 PCI-E slots will have native support for both technologies. There likely will be cheaper boards will one or the other available. Of course, all of the ROG level, top-class enthusiast boards from the big companies will likely have both technologies supported as the option to use your preferred company's GPUs will increase board sales.

You are correct. There are some p55 and p67 boards without sli support. I don't remember about x58 but im sure they exist. But the big name boards will have SLI support like the ultra durable family and ROG boards. Though if its got 2 pcie slots, it supports crossfire.

Of course not. If they display the logo does it not make sense they have also implemented the software or intellectual property. Think about what your writing at all?
I'm pretty sure get paid per unit, just like everyone. You think they are giving it away. They are in the $$$ money making business.

If I remember correctly, the X58 chipsets support both SLI and Crossfire. At least my Rampage III Extreme does.
