OMG! WIF 4 RADIONS IN MY C()MPUT3R I WILL PWNZR J()() ALL IN CS:S! AND IT'S B3TT3R B/C IT COSTS A [email protected] TIMES M()R3 THAN J00R NUB SYSTEM! >:3

*ahem*

didn't nvidia's quad-SLI turn out to be a relative disappointment?
and what about cost-wise, for a 2.6x improvement using 3 cards (no mobos w/ 4 pcix 16x that i know of atm) i don't wanna spend 150% more on v-cards than the rest of the rig itself.

pardon if it's old info, i haven't been able to keep track of these new chipset developments lately

Do you have proof of that? Last I checked with XP, SLI provided better percentage gains in SLI. I was using MaximumPC data.

Hmm, most reviews I've read state that as far as percent of improvement when a second equal card is added crossfire is closer to double performance than sli in xp (though neither come too close, lol).

If you read the article you'd know that it's about a new chipset with four pci-e2.0 slots at 8x each, for said quad crossfire.

P.S. Sorry for the double post....

It is FAR superior to SLI.... so really... think about it.

Incorrect Crossfire outperforms SLI by staggering numbers.

LOL @ ignorance
Shouldn't this be dubbed 'dual Crossfire'
Crossfire=2*card
Dual Crossfire=2*Crossfire=4cards.......

Where is the thread that shows 4 2600XTs in Crossfire? There was a motherboard with PCI-E 1.0 slots I believe....maybe this was mobo with this chipset.

I'm pretty sure this will only end up in one of those 4X4 systems, I wouldn't be surprised if it was an EATX.

You know as long as the power consumption is low enough, that could be a potent combination on a PCI 2.0 motherboard. (two of these cards)

You're correct. SLI performed better in XP, while Crossfire apparently did better in Vista.
