It just becomes too complex to coordinate 4 GPUs, especially in the case of gaming, where the frames must be rendered and assembled as fast as possible. There is just too much latency involved in the transmission of data across 4 GPUs and 4 seperate banks of memory. As a result performance suffers. I dont expect quad Crossfire to outpace current 2 card setups.
Nicely said.
