CrossFire works on SLI - HP proves it

HP's new Blackbird 002 gaming PC proves that it's possible to run ATI graphics cards in CrossFire on a NVIDIA nForce SLI chipset:
The folks at Custard PC magazine spoke to HP's Gaming CTO, Rahul Sood, who told them: "What’s really cool is that we’re only using the Nforce chipset for Intel, because it’s the best chipset, but we’re also giving the choice of Crossfire or SLI on it."

Interesting stuff. Voodoo claims that this secret sauce is part of HP's move to be 'component agnostic' - delivering the gaming experience to customers without necessarily caring about the components that do it.
