ATI is beavering away at Quad Crossfire

Still a way away

WE KNOW that the Canadian red beast is working on its answer to Quad SLI.

We know that the company is not too happy about Quad SLI, as it still doesn't have a riposte. But we also know that they have some consolation, as it knows that not even Nvidia is happy about it. It is not easy to make a driver to drive four graphic cards.

We also know that ATI is planning to introduce its own four-card stunner but we think it won't have it ready before the end of summer. We know that there is a desire.

They can put two X1600, RV530 GPUs on the board so I guess that ATI should make dual RV560 solutions as well but this won't be enough to fight the quad SLI.

It is a show-off marchitecture, but you need to make it to sell the slower cards. Four is always better than two, at least if you talk about girls, but I would prefer to have two loans rather than four. µ
