SAPPHIRE is apparently making a dual RV570 board with internal Crossfire. It sounds very similar to the Quad SLI GX2 cards from Nvidia. The card has two power connectors and a huge heat pipe cooler on top of two chips but just a single fan. According to the source,performance of the card is as yet unknown, but Sapphire will probably show this card off very soon.

Looking at the images provided below, it is longer than the motherboard so it is probably at least as big as the 7950GX2 card. It is still unknown if the card will work as a Quad Crossfire with two cards, each having two chips but it should be possible.

I wish I had never mentioned IPB in the first place now :eek:

But anyway I might aswell have my say, I run a forum using IPB and I find the admin section very easy to use although modding is not made that easy.

I have never any other forum admin portals so couldnt comment on others although I think IPB itself seems a little more user friendly ;)
