Four Radeon HD 4850s In CrossfireX

Shane is down at IBP AU, running up their power bill with four HD 4850s on the trusty 4GHz QX9650. How'd it all go?

Introduction

 

The guys down at IBuyPower Australia can't get rid of me these days. I'm surprised they haven't started asking me to pay rent. The other day the ASUS P5E64 WS Evolution board arrived, and this thing just absolutely won me over as far as looks and features went.

 

However, the feature that we really care about today is the fact it has four PCI Express x16 slots. While ASUS use a x16/x16/x4/x4 configuration, it's really one of the best on the market. So, with four HD 4850s in hand and hopefully a driver that was going to work, it was time to take four of these single slot bad boys to town.

 

Before we get stuck into the results, let's have a quick look at the photos and just how cool four graphics cards in your system looks. From there we will get stuck into our benchmark results and see what's going on with CrossfireX in the new 4800 series cards from AMD.
