This morning during Computex 2005 in Taiwan (that big IT show happening at the moment) we got the chance to run some exclusive benchmarks on a Crossfire platform which consisted of two Radeon X850XT cards. Later this afternoon we discovered more Crossfire goodness hiding away in a back room somewhere but this time they were Radeon X850XT PE cards and we did see a performance jump.
We're hearing and seeing A LOT about ATI's Crossfire at Computex 2005 so far and it's only the first day - the next attack move will be on nVidia's G70 but will complete Crossfire first. Tomorrow we're going to run our entire suite of benchmarks on the platform with single and dual card testing...you'll see it first here at TweakTown - it's a good thing we haven't signed any NDA's with ATI about their new SLI alternative, that's for sure or we might get locked up in a Taiwanese prison or something.
You can find the complete set of benchmarks here which we ran today and tomorrow we'll publish a separate article with the fresh new results sometime tomorrow afternoon Taiwan local time.
