R600 supports Quad setups

Quad Crossfire is on the way

WE LEARNED one more critical detail about the R600. The chip can and will support Quad setups. It will work with four cards. ATI has been working to solve the four card performance problem for a while. Nvidia tried it and we tested the Quad SLI with two 7950 GX2 cards but we got super lame performances out of it.

The power supply manufacturers are thrilled about four cards in a high-end machine as such a system will demand a lot of power, probably even more than 1000W.

ATI can possibly push a frame or two with its Alternate Frame Rendering marchitecture and make it more efficient than the split screen rendering. We will have to wait and see but it sounds like in March some records are going to get broken. µ
