    Crossfire on way out?

    http://www.theinquirer.net/default.aspx?article=33524

    Perhaps just speculation, but one thing that jumped out at me:

    And AMD can't use Crossfire either. For a start, despite lots of promises, plenty of column inches and many product announcements, try to buy a Crossfire motherboard for an AM2 socket processor and see how far you get. They're incredibly rare. There's no sign of products from Asus, Gigabyte, MSI, DFI or any of the other big names apart from a few press releases. In fact, the only one we could find for sale was an ECS that was out of stock. This is two and half months after the launch of AM2.
    That is interesting.......

    Sorry, fixed.

    I didn't see the other thread in 3d graphics, so I posted as I thought i t was newsworthy.
