[semiofftopic]That's what I was told a week ago when I was reccomending someone some SLi. He said the newer ATI cards with crossfire support have this compatibility. [/semiofftopic]

No, the Crossfire cards can be used with different cards of the same model. Eg. An X850pro will crossfire with an X850XT etc. An X800 won't work with an X1800 etc.

If you do use diferent cards, both cards will use the different clock speeds, but both cards will use the same number of Pipelines.
