This comes as a surprise since ATI has previously supported CrossFire on Intel 945, 955, and 975 chipsets. Users looking for a DDR2-800 MHz supporting chipset will have to turn to the upcoming ATI RD600 which promises DDR2-800/1066 MHz compatibility as well as two full speed PCI Express x16 slots.Broadwater will likely be announced on June 7.
It is unknown if ATI has any intention of supporting CrossFire with the 96x family of chipsets in the future.
