Taiwanese based hardware site HKEPC have sourced some hot spicey details on ATI's upcoming Intel (Conroe) CrossFire platform, RD600. This is looking to be a real weapon and will hopefully help close the gap with NVIDIA in the way of producing a highly competitive chipset for the enthusiast market.
Unfortunately the translated content is a little sketchy but theres some white paper material (in english) and images giving us a few ideas of what this chipset will bring to the table (Mmmmm ATI physics support, bring on the candy baby!).
We'll no doubt be hearing a lot more about this during the course of Computex next week!

This product is targeted on enthusiastic user, supporting 1333MHz FSB, Dual Channel DDR2-1066 and providing Split Channel Mode to lower the latency. From the internal testing, a maximum of 1600MHz was reported in the over clock mode with A13 version, which has 6 PCB layers. In addition, the memory clock is independent to the FSB. It sounds good to the fans of over clocking.
