4GHz Alienware endorses Crossfire

SLI doesn't like X38


Alienware was forced to release the fastest gaming PC packed with Core 2 Extreme QX6850 overclocked all the way to 4GHz, pack the machine with a bunch of latest greatest DDR3, offer up to 4 Terabytes of storage, along with two Radeon 3870 inside.

The choice is simple:  Intel wants its own chipset to power such a machine, and X38 doesn’t have support for SLI.

Alienware separated itself from SLI and the 8800 GT SLI that would clearly perform better, and instead went for CrossfireX, as Nvidia doesn’t grant support for SLI on Intel chipsets.

The only nice thing that can come out of this machine is that it should be able to accommodate two Radeon 3870X2, R680 dual chip cards. This would result with Quad Crossfire and we believe that many people would like the sound of that.

You can buy one here and the base version costs ₤3318.
