ATI CrossFire benchmarked

The lucky guys from AnandTech were able to get their hands on a CrossFire ready motherboard from Gigabyte and a CrossFire mastercard from ATI. They present us an exclusive report on ATI's CrossFire technology.
The GA-K8AMVP Pro is based on the ATI's latest RD480 chipset paired with a ULi south bridge and features CrossFire support. We'll be taking a closer look at this board as well, as Gigabyte tells us that it can even support 2x 3D1 cards. The board looks very similar to Gigabyte's NF4 SLI boards, including the selector paddle for configuring the PCI Express ports. Flipped to single GPU, the first PCI Express slot gets 16 lanes, and flipped to multi GPU mode will run each slot at x8.
