Default AMD Lasso - Allows for External Crossfire Setup

Lasso is a codename for AMD external graphics technology and the latest revision is able to support Crossfire on the Radeon HD 2000 series. In the current revision, there are 2 PCIe x16 slots on the Lasso board with a chipset onboard that offers 48 PCIe lanes so theoretical you can have 3 PCIe x16 slots running at full 16x bandwidth for Crossfire + Physics setup or 4 PCIe x16 slots running at 8x bandwidth in Quad Crossfire setup.
