HIS mix and match Crossfire plus Dual Mode Graphics Card
Also at the Grand Hyatt were our friends from HIS who are based out of Hong Kong. While ATI don't have anything overly exciting this year to announce at Computex in terms of GPU's, HIS still had a couple interesting products for us to take a look at.
Probably the most interesting product we saw was their Radeon X1600 Pro with Dual Interface. With this unique setup, you can choose to run either AGP 8x or PCI Express depending on what motherboard you use. It would be very interesting to know if HIS could use this technology on a brand new high-end X1900XTX which would be great for users who didn't wish to upgrade their motherboard, memory and CPU but HIS weren't sure and we think ATI would have something to say about that.
Next up is another HIS Radeon X1600 but with a major difference. It's a low-profile version with Dual DVI and HDMI - perfect for a HTPC.
And lastly we have some proof that the mixing and matching of different X1900 series Radeon graphics cards works just fine with Crossfire Dual GPU technology enabled. HIS were showing a regular X1900 Crossfire master card working with one of their new IceQ 3 X1900XTX cards.
You'll still need a cable to connect the cards together but at least this technology is improving and becoming more flexible.
