Someone from the mpb asked ATI about multi chip solutions, are they possible and what is ATI doing about it. He said "yes" to that and we remembered ATI Rage fury MAXX card with two Rage chip that was not that successful but possible and real. I remember that that card was without Windows 2000 drivers as ATI simply could not make them, then.More info at The Inquirer
Dave said that they are shipping multi chip solutions even now, I guess he thought about the MAXX card, if not we would like to ask him what card he had in mind. And if not of course we humbly apologise, naturally.
Dev (Dave?) added that multi processor solution makes sense when power consumption gets to high and then the only solution is to migrate to dual core chips or even two chip solutions. He added that when cost of the chip and developing process gets higher then ATI will move to multi chips. He was not precise to say when.
