IT'S TIME TO reveal one of the last facts before ATI introduces its Crossfire, MutiVPU, SLI competitor system. ATI will reveal this system very early on the 31st of May. This time it's all about its Master cards.

I've had a MasterCard for a while but I can pay my bills with mine while you won't be able to pay in restaurant with ATI card but you will sure be able to settle some scores in shutters with ATI's Crossfire master card. We learned that ATI will make all these cards itself and not even Sapphire will be able to make Crossfire edition master cards. ATI wants full control over this manufacturing process.

ATI will name these cards as X850XT Crossfire edition and XT non Platinum edition will cost $549, for which you will obviously need a valid MasterCard. This card will work with X850XT Platinum edition, X850XT and X850PRO slave cards.

The X800XL Crossfire edition card with 256MB will cost $299 while 128MB card will be priced at $249. This card will work with X800XT Platinum edition, X800XT, X800XL, X800PRO and X800 vanilla slave cards.

All Crossfire Edition cards have High Density DMS+DVI dongle which supports DVI+DVI with cable and supports CRT with adaptor. It should be ready for your display.

Here is a picture of X850 master card. Notice that it looks like most of X850 cards, but just has two DVI outs.
