Radeon HD 3870 Quad CrossFire Pics

While everyoneís attention is on the Radeon HD 3800 series today (and rightly so), I thought Iíd post a few teaser images of ATiís Quad CrossFire in action to stir things up a bit. Looks mighty impressive, doesnít it?

What kind of performance would that give? I'm thinking very good... lol. Also, the 3800 series is WAY cheaper than I anticipated.

edit: It looks like it's only using a 750W PSU too. Or do my eyes deceive me?

edit2: Also. This isn't totally useless. Crysis laughs at every peace of hardware thrown at it right now. Quad-GPUs may change that.

if its a pc power and cooling 750 watt it might be enough
with a qx9650 this could max out crysis (COULD)
osiris = warez?
