    Question ASUS P6T7 WS SuperComputer - No ATi Xfire?

    I noticed something very odd whilst looking for some additional utilities for my Mobo.

    ASUS have suddenly dropped any mention of ATi Cross Fire being a feature of this Mobo (P6T7 WS SuperComputer).

    The only reference to ATi is on the product box itself.
    http://www.asus.com/product.aspx?P_I...oLk&templete=2

    The original spec looked like this:
    http://hothardware.com/News/Asus-Deb...r-Motherboard/

    The box comes with both the SLI and Crossfire connection boards so Im a little baffled.
    Have ASUS fallen out with ATi or dropped support for XFire on future revisions??

    I thought the xfire support was built into the x58 chipset.....ergo it should work as long as you place them in the slots that are serviced by the x58 and not the slots serviced by the 2 nvidia chips.

    Oh yeah, good point. It would have been worse if they removed mention of nVidia. Perhaps nVidia paid them extra to have ATi removed as it will come with it anyway.

    Its weird they still mention it on their P6Tx and Rampage models and used to mention it on the P6T7.
