Have you had your eyes on the new Radeon HD 4000 series? Well if you have and you are considering placing two of them in Crossfire, we have an article you should check out first. For those using older P35 and X38 motherboards you may find this article particularly interesting, as we compare the Crossfire performance of these older chipsets to the newer P45 and X48 chipsets...
By simply firing up 3Dmark Vantage we found that the new X48 chipset was able to provide 17% more performance than the older P35 chipset when using two Radeon HD 4850 graphics cards in Crossfire mode. More over, the X48 was less than a percent faster than the P35, which was just a percent faster than the X38 chipset. These numbers would not exactly have X38 owners rushing out to pick up an Intel P45 or X48 motherboard.
