ATI's Radeon X1800 CrossFire Edition graphics card
ATI'S FORTUNES HAVE BEEN dented a little bit by delays to its CrossFire dual-graphics solution and its Radeon X1000-series graphics chips, but red team has been scrambling to catch up. The company has brought to market most of the pieces of a brand-new, top-to-bottom lineup of products with a rapid-fire succession of product launches. After a few sputters, most Radeon X1000 series graphics cards are now available, as are CrossFire motherboards and video cards. ATI still needs to deliver a few missing pieces in order to catch up with its rival NVIDIA, and that's what we have gathered here today.

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.óbut 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.

not special, more hassle and no faster in most tests or slower then two 7800 GTX 256, which are cheaper then the x1800xt's...
the sli 512 7800 soar high but are too expensive to put in sli (1500 euros and unavailable)
