ATI has lifted the wraps off the benchmark results of the RADEON X8-series in the CrossFire mode. The technology appears to work, but it has some serious limitations in its current implementation. Is dual-RADEON X850 XT setup worth buying, or is it better to wait till the new generation arrives? X-bit labs attempts to find out.
The use of CrossFire support in this game resulted into a dramatic performance hit. We ran the tests a couple times to verify that this is not an accidental measuring error, however, the results remained the same. Why did CrossFire behave so strangely here, especially keeping in mind that they claimed its absolute software-independence? It might be the drivers that are to blame this time.
