We haven't seen many motherboards with ATI chipsets at PCSTATS, but it's nice to see that the Crossfire Xpress 3200 can easily keep pace with the nVIDIA nForce 570/590 SLI chipsets. If you're in the market for a new motherboard, there's no reason not to consider CrossFire Xpress 3200 based motherboards.
