Works with all games ATI claims 

It's time to talk about some numbers referred to ATI crossfire Multi VPU systems. We can only used ATI own reference performance numbers seen in a document that it got in its labs. 

ATI claims that its Crossfire will be compatible with all games. All games should get performance increase while this should not be the case with Nvidia SLI platform.

Compared with two 6800 Ultra in SLI, ATI's Crossfire should end up about 10 per cent faster in 3Dmark05 benchmark, about 30 percent in Splinter cell C.T game and more than 60 percent in Need For Speed Underground 2 game. ATI is talking about results gathered from testing SLI and Crossfire platforms on 1600x1200 resolution, with 4X FSAA and 8X aniso, Athlon 64, 1GB DDR 400 memory, RD480 motherboard with 8.151 driver. ATI used two X850 XT Crossfire cards versus Asus SLI Deluxe board, 71.89 drivers, and two 6800 Ultra cards in SLI.

Compared with single X850 XT PE card, Crossfire cards performs 10 percent faster in 3Dmark03, more than 60 percent faster in old Return to Castle Wolfenstein and almost 100 percent faster in Splinter cell game. Interesting choice of games, I wonder are those the games that show the biggest difference. We don’t even doubt that.

Same document implies that Nvidia SLI won't show any performance increase in versus single 6800 Ultra card in The chronicles of Riddick, UT 2004 and Rollercoaster Tycoon 3 games.

We should see some tests from Computex while officially ATI will send out Crossfire test systems by the end of June. We are more the sort of see it to believe it kind of person so you should take all this with a grain of salt as it comes from ATI.
