Sapphire Technology has announced two new models for its Pure CrossFire series offering 16x performance on both PCI Express (PCIe) slots in a dual GPU system.

According to the company, both of the dual PCIe graphics slots on the PC-A9RD580 motherboard provide full 16-lane performance with dual graphics cards and CrossFire modes. The motherboard supports a 2000MT/s HyperTransport interface and up to 4GB of dual channel DDR memory, while BIOS options also allow CPU, bus and memory speeds to be adjusted over a wide range.

An additional PCIe x1 and one standard PCI slot meet the need for expansion, and onboard communications options include Marvell Gigabit LAN and Firewire as well as eight USB 2.0 ports and on-board High Definition Azalia 7.1 8-channel sound. The system also has four SATA-I RAID and four SATA-II RAID connections as well as IDE ATA133 support.
