IMG 7605s AMD Lasso; External 2900XT Crossfire Pictured

While we thought this Computex is the most uninteresting year
for graphics cards where there are no very interesting stuffs being showcased
but luckily Lasso save the day. Lasso is a codename for AMD external graphics
technology and the latest revision is able to support Crossfire on the Radeon HD
2000 series. In the current revision, there are 2 PCIe x16 slots on the Lasso
board with a chipset onboard that offers 48 PCIe lanes so theoretical you can
have 3 PCIe x16 slots running at full 16x bandwidth for Crossfire + Physics
setup or 4 PCIe x16 slots running at 8x bandwidth in Quad Crossfire setup. For
the current setup, there is a pair 2900XT 1GB GDDR4 cards linked up by 2 long
Crossfire bridges inside a case with 500W PSU made specially for Lasso. However,
there is no guidance from AMD yet to which when Lasso will be announced.
