A brief look at CrossFireX scaling

FPS Labs have been playing with 2x MSI Radeon HD 3870 X2 video cards, and an early CrossFireX driver.

speaking of CrossFire, is it only for ATI cards? I have nVidia SLI components and I'm not ready to buy anymore vidio cards.

CrossFire is ATI. SLI is nVidia. They are different ways of accomplishing the same thing, and are completely incompatible with each other.

thanks Gizmo, I was sure they were incompatible. it will influence my next purchase. I am open for CrossFife later.
my main goal is still for Foolding not gaming. I did manage to kill my 8NPA-SLI and still have the vid cards, so SLI first!
