Default OctoFire?

well considering the fact that 3870 X2 is two gpu dies on one board and some newer boards i have seen have 4 PCI-e2 slots, and some with 4 cards in them, i have 1 question, will you be able to set up 4 3870 X2 in Crossfire?

if ATI could make decent drivers to support that then yes.....will they? prolly not. They could barely make their crossfire drivers work.....

No, I was looking at another thread a while back, and I think the Xfire connection on the cards themselves don't support more then a 2 card setup.

XP Pro | Vista Home Premium | Linux Ubuntu 7.10
s939 X2 3800 Toledo @ 2.6ghz | evga 7900gs | 320gig + 80gig wd | 1gb Ram | Abit KN8 SLI
3.1ghz achieved. :cool:
