ATI's CrossFire arriving a bit too late?

ATI's long awaited multi-GPU CrossFire platform has finally seen its official introduction this week, we ask ourselves whether it could be too little too late?

Well over a year ago I attended an ATI press briefing and was approached by an ATI PR representative that had obviously read some of my columns about NVIDIA’s SLI. He commented that I must’ve been on NVIDIA’s payroll when I wrote them as obviously SLI was never going to materialize and if it did, it would be haunted by problems. He continued his rebuttal by stating that ATI would never be tempted to try such a solution, as there is no market for it. Only a few months later I reminded him of those words at another press briefing where ATI had just announced that they’d also try their hand at a multi-GPU solution right after the successful introduction of NVIDIA’s SLI..
