Sapphire Delivers Fastest Mainboard Yet

Sapphire Technology has just announced two new models in its Pure CrossFire series which are the first products to offer true 16x performance on both PCI-Express slots in a dual GPU system.

Based on the latest CrossFire Xpress 3200 chipset and SB450 Southbridge it combines support for the AMD Athlon64, FX and dual core.

PURE CrossFire PC-A9RD580
For the first time, both of the dual PCI-Express graphics slots on this mainboard provide full 16-lane performance promising the highest possible performance with dual graphics cards and CrossFire modes. Supporting 2000MT/s HyperTransport interface and up to 4GB of Dual Channel DDR memory, BIOS options also allow CPU, bus and memory speeds to be adjusted over a wide range - delivering the extreme overclocking facilities demanded by enthusiasts.

An additional PCI-Express x1 plus one standard PCI slots meet the need for expansion, and a wide range of onboard communications options include Marvell Gigabit LAN and Firewire as well as eight USB 2.0 ports and on-board High Definition Azalia 7.1 8-channel sound. Peak hard drive performance is assured with four SATA-I RAID and four SATA-II RAID connections as well as IDE ATA133 support.

PURE CrossFire Advantage
Based on the same architecture, the new Sapphire PURE CrossFire Advantage PC-A9RD580ADV board offers system integrators the most cost effective solution to a high dual graphics system with any AMD Athlon64 series processor.

Software Bundle
In addition to a WHQL Driver CD, Sapphire mainboards are now shipping with the Trend Micro Internet Security 2004, StompSoft PC BackUp, Stompsoft Privacy Protector and Stompsoft Trial Software (Recover LostData, Spyware X-terminator) as well as a Sapphire Select DVD. The DVD contains a selection of top applications and games from several software houses. The end customer can play each of the games for a one hour trial before choosing which titles to keep and using the activation codes for those titles.
