CrossfireX quad driver expected in January

Written by Fuad Abazovic

Still on track


The Crossfire X driver is the great big hope for ATI's graphics future. There is a lot at stake with this driver. The success of R680, dual RV670 card hangs in the balance, as this driver has to be able to run two or even four RV670 core and give some satisfactory scores.

Nvidia just launched its three-way SLI and in extreme situations this concept works well, so people would expect a lot from four RV670 cards, or two R680 cards with two chip each.

The driver was and still is on schedule for mid to late January and we are sure that we will see the demonstration next week at CES, while the final one should be ready by the end of the month.

The driver launch is scheduled for Radeon 3870 X2, aka R680 launch, and at this time that looks like late January or first week of February. The cards work, we’ve seen them back in early November, it’s all about the driver now.
