Intel Broadwater 96x chipsets don't support CrossFire

Daily Tech writes the upcoming 96x Broadwater chipsets from Intel won't feature support for CrossFire at launch.
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.

It is unknown if ATI has any intention of supporting CrossFire with the 96x family of chipsets in the future.
Broadwater will likely be announced on June 7.
