Anandtech takes a look at CrossFire
with some early samples. While there are a few glitches, it looks like a strong
competitor to nVIDIA's NF4 SLI.
So, what have we learned? CrossFire is a solid competitor to SLI at the
high end. The hardware and drivers are far enough along to provide very good
performance on quite a few titles. SuperTiling works using 32x32 blocks and
doesn't seem to have any problems other than the odd glitch while changing modes.
CrossFire AA modes don't work quite yet, but games will run and something near
what should be there shows up.
Gigabyte has stated that they not only have NVIDIA SLI working on their
GA-K8AMVP Pro, but that dual 3D1 cards will work as well (with a modified BIOS
and driver at the moment). We haven't had a chance yet to test this ourselves,
but we will definitely have something up on the combination as soon as we can.
Certainly found the bolded statement very interesting! =D
