Fans of small computer systems will be able to build a Quad CrossFire micro ATX powerhouse thanks to DFI this summer. TG Daily writes this motherboard will have two PCI Express x16 slots, which allows you to drop in two of those X2 cards.
Unlike all mainstream motherboards with AMD's 780G or 790GX chipset, this mATX board has two PCIe Gen2 x16 slots, which allow users to plug in two ATI-powered cards. Even better, this motherboard supports dual-slot cards, so even Quad-CrossFire is doable (two 3870 X2 or 4870 X2).

To create a convincing overclocking mATX motherboard, BIOS wizard Oscar Wu even moved to DFI's office, where he is apparently working night and day in order to come up with overclocking options. Time will tell can if this product can get DFI back into the market, but if you are looking for a compact, yet potential gaming machine, this just might do the trick.
Just make sure your mini ATX case has enough cooling, otherwise you might end up with an expensive bread toaster.
