ATI is getting ready to ship out its first CrossFire motherboards. According to The Inquirer a bunch of reviewers have already received samples and the final release is slated for September 24th.
We learned that ATI plans to lift its NDAs on the 24th, just some days before it announces its R520, Radeon X1800 and the rest of the R5xx generation. The company didn't have any choice as it had many small problems with the Crossfire concept that kept those boards postponed. We remember that one of the key problems with Crossfire was the linking external cable that caused a few weeks delay.
