DigiTimes wrote ATI's CrossFire dual graphics card drivers will support Intel's 955X chipset. They also unveiled that the first motherboards with CrossFire-enabled Intel 955X chipsets will appear on the market in August.

Motherboard makers such as Asus and Gigabyte, ass well as Intel, are preparing to launch 955X CrossFire-enabled motherboards.

In addition, ATI will debut two CrossFire chipsets. The RD400 for Intel processors and the RD480 for AMD processors.

Another interesting tidbit: motherboard makers report demand for sub-$60 motherboards is rising. These motherboards now account for 60 percent of the market while high-end motherboards with prices of more than $75 account for only 20 percent of the market.
