AMD Moving Towards Multi-GPU Cards
 
AMD announced at the recent Analyst Day conference that they will be utilizing multi-GPU graphics cards in order to make up their high-end lines. 
 
According to card manufacturers, they are already hard at work, with the first card to be a HD 3870 X2 coming next month at a price range of $299-349.  This card will be utilizing the PEX6347 PCI Express bridge chip to allow the two GPUs to work together.
 
AMD has plans to integrate their own bridge chip onto the board starting with the next-gen R700 series so that they won't have to rely on third-party chips.
 
Are multi-GPU graphics cards the way of the future?  AMD seems to think so.
