RD580 Launch Day - ATI CrossFire Xpress 3200 Chipset

| CPUs, Chipsets & SoCs News | Posted: Mar 2, 2006 12:43 pm

Today brings us the debut of ATI's all-new CrossFire Xpress 3200 motherboard chipset (previously codenamed RD580). One of the biggest highlights over its predecessor (the RD480 chipset) would be the implementation of two x16 PCI Express lanes for far superior bandwidth and overall graphics performance. Overclocking on these boards is said to be a hell of a lot better too, as is general stability.


ATI's press release can be found here. The official product page has further info as well.


ATI Technologies Inc. (TSX:ATY)(NASDAQ:ATYT), has changed the rules of the motherboard industry with the introduction of its CrossFire(TM) Xpress 3200 chipset-delivering the enthusiast gaming platform of the future. Developed from the ground up for multi-GPU gaming, the CrossFire Xpress 3200 chipset enables the world's fastest gaming performance, advanced overclocking capabilities and bedrock stability available in an AMD-based PC motherboard today.
