ATI's Radeon X1800 CrossFire Edition graphics card@ 2005/12/12
If you're longing to see a $1200 Radeon graphics subsystem under the Christmas three this year, you will need a Radeon X1800 CrossFire Edition graphics card. This magical device will allow you to sync up with a regular Radeon X1800 XT or XL graphics card for nearly double the rendering power of a single card. This new CrossFire card also sweeps away some of the limitations of the first-generation CrossFire hardware introduced just a couple of months ago, allowing mega-high-res gaming, among other things.
Now, we know the Radeon X1800 XT isn't quite as bone-jarringly fast as NVIDIA's new GeForce 7800 GTX 512, but it's still a fire-breathing monster. Running two X1800 XTs together in CrossFire is a good way to strain your neck, singe your hair, or at least develop a very serious addiction to F.E.A.R.—but we're willing to take that chance for you, our loyal readers. Keep reading to see how ATI puts on a Christmas light show, Radeon style.
