Default Crossfire X.

Can someone point me in the direction of a Quad Crossfire capable motherboard. Both Intel and AMD based please. Thanks.

I don't think an intel motherboard can have crossfire since intel owns nvidia and amd owns ATI.

Ahh, I've misread. I take back my agreement with IBM/PS1.

All the P35 and X38 Intel chipsets support Crossfire.

Intel and Nvidia were in talks of trading technology licenses, such as Nvidia giving Intel the SLI license. But was later squashed, from what I heard.

From what I hear, that MSI motherboard I linked, is the best motherboard for the AM2 socket at the moment.

There are other ones, but I haven't heard much about them, compared to the K9A2 Plat.

Here's another one, that is AMD based:
Newegg.com - ASUS M3A32-MVP Deluxe/WiFi AM2+/AM2 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail

Not that I know of. Since AMD does own ATI.
