AMD Introduces Hybrid CrossFire - Budget Gaming

AMD is announcing their upcoming Hybrid CrossFire technology today in New York during their financial analyst day, which is aimed at improving gaming graphics at lower price points. What makes this announcement even more exciting is the fact that they are showing off a test system with the 780G chipset and Radeon HD 3450 video cards! Check it out!

thats all quite cool stuff that AMD is doing! i think it'd easy for us enthusiasts to forget the rest of the users out there who really do want their machines to "just run it"

my dad belongs in that category :D i'm sure he'll be glad to hear of this new bit of tech. i'm curious to see if they're going to up the ante for the higher end users. can you imagine just 1 board and 1 card adding up to 1 board plus 2 full fledged GPUs?

in conclusion: me likey :)
MSI 970A-G43
AMD Phenom II X4 965BE @ 3.5 GHz
10 GB DDR3 1333 CAS-7
GeForce GTX 650 Ti OC 2GB
2TB Seagate HDD, 1TB WD HDD for backups,
Antec P-180B, Antec 450W PSU
ASUS 27" LED LCD Monitor
someday I will get a real GPU and some SSD's... :goodman:

I would really like to see AMD go a little bit more in the direction that Nvidia is going wither thier SLI/Chipset Platform where every mobo has an onboard GPU to handle all the 2D work when it is needed and power down the 3D card. I think that if they could do that with their new 3870x2 or even with non X2 cards, they would make Crossfile X even more attractive.

That's good.

Also seen nVidia doing Hybrid SLI by putting a Integrated GPU onto all of their motherboards.

More performance + lower price = Happy Customers. :)

Now they just need to address the low form factor customer base and I'll be happy. Not all of us use big cases.
