HIS To Release Dual X1600XT Crossfire On Single PCIe

ATI solutions provider HighTech Infomation System (HIS) revealed that they will release the Gemini X1600XT during Computex. According to HIS Marketing Manager Mr. Peter Yeung, this card is different from Asus’s Dual X1600XT as it does not run via RD480’s PCI-E X8 + X8 buss but rather through a bridge chip released by TLX. Data tranfer between GPUs operate on a similar concept as nVDIA Geforce 7950GX2’s BR02. This allows the full PCI-E X16 wideband to be enjoyed by both X1600XT units. CrossFire can therefore run on any single PCIe X16 slot on this graphics accelerator.
