No master cards for Radeon X1300, X1600 CrossFire


— 3:34 AM on November 8, 2005

AnandTech is reporting that Radeon X1600 and X1300 CrossFire won't require a master card. New drivers will apparently allow CrossFire to operate over the PCI Express bus, although high-end Radeons will still require a master card. There's no word on how much running CrossFire over only the PCI-E bus will impact performance, but for mid-range and low-end markets, the flexibility of a master card-less design may be more desirable.
