ATI to make Quad Crossfire

post #1 of 16

The Inquirer reports that ATI is preparing to bring their dual GPU "Gemini" technology to the company's refresh of their flagship R580 GPU. Here, two GPU's will be placed on a single PCB allowing for Quad-Crossfire configurations using standard dual PCI-Express graphics card slots. A few years back, ATI did a similar thing with their "MAXX" series of Rage graphics chipsets. It will certainly be interesting to see how history repeats itself with a "MAXX" series of R590 GPU's

Thats really exciting.
I dont really want to buy a new motherboard to take advantage of multi-gpu designs. But this should help out a lot, essentially offering crossfire in a single card package. However, those thermal properties have to be insane. =\\

And I bet it'll cost the same as the 7900GX2...

Probably. But the downside to having two processors on one PCB is that my neat Maze4 wont fit on it =( *tear*
