From two to three GPUs with CrossfireX Quad

From two to three GPUs with CrossfireX Quad

There was a reason that I was excited about AMD/ATi releasing the Catalyst 8.3 drivers yesterday - and that's because I had (waiting in the wings) a dual-GPU Sapphire Radeon 3870 X2 dual GPU graphics card which I wanted to fit into my main system along with a Radeon 3870 using CrossfireX Quad technology.

Conroe puts Intel back on top

Conroe puts Intel back on top

A $180 Core 2 Duo E6400 CPU can outperform an AMD Athlon FX-62 (which costs $1,059). Not only that, but it thrashes the Intel Extreme Edition 965 too. At that end of the Conroe scale, the performance differences are small (but not when you factor in the price), but take it to the other end of the scale, the Core 2 Extreme X6800 has everything eating it's dust.
