Intel P45 to support CrossFire X

Posted on Thursday, Dec 20 2007 @ 19:22 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
Sources at motherboard makers report Intel received a CrossFire X license for its P45 chipsets:
Although ATI originally said it would be open to licensing CrossFire to those who wanted to, the acquisition of the company by AMD, followed by the resignations of Dave Orton and Rick Hegberg, former CEO and vice president of worldwide sales of ATI, respectively, sparked concerns among motherboard makers that AMD would completely cut its cooperation with Intel.

The cooperation between the two CPU makers is expected to put pressure on Nvidia, added the sources.
