The Tech Report says Gigabyte may soon unveil a AMD 690G based motherboard with CrossFire support:
The site reports that Gigabyte has been showing off a 690G motherboard at CeBIT that features an open-ended PCI Express x4 slot capable of accommodating a second graphics card. This GA-MA69G-S3 board is also reportedly the first 690G-based offering with a full-sized ATX form factor. The product feature list shot by HKEPC doesn't mention CrossFire support, but the site says it has received word from its sources that the GA-MA69G-S3 will probably be the first 690G board to support AMD's dual-GPU technology. Since the mobo has integrated graphics, HKEPC says it may also support a total of six display outputs—two for each graphics processor—via AMD's SurroundView feature.
