Default ATi's SLi is COMING!!

Ok ATi Fanboys and GPU lovers. ATi is making their weapon to use against SLi.

It is called AMR ( ATi Multi Rendering ) . It will be available probably in late May or June of this year, so get ready.

It differs in the fact that all the PCIe channels are singular and enabled, meaning full 16X unimpeded capabilities. Also, it doesn't use a small printed circuit board like SLi does (the SLi bridge). The cards communicate through a 1X PCIe lanes inbetween the 16X slots that allows for even higher bandwidth. AMR is going to be special, and use the XPRESS 300 Chipset from ATi. GigaByte and MSI are onboard, as well as ASUS and Chaintech. Others are yet to come. Ati will be making their own boards as well.

So, your wet dreams of ATi's answer to SLi is coming true. Enjoy!

Indeed they will, but by that time, ATi will probably have the x900XL PE!

Now, on to a lighter subject. This technology will be vastly superior to SLi because of the uninterrupted PCIe BUS. SLi uses a printed topside PCB Board (SLi Bridge) which slows the process down a bit.

Well, you posted in the thread about my new PC, and you obviously saw the area between where Cobra flamed me for having another new PC. And then I am just supposed to remain calm? I accept your apology, sorry for blowing up, but LK and you Ardy and driving me insane tonight saying XBOX2 will be UBER GREAT and will rule the world and insulting Nintendo, whom I grew up with BTW. Let's not discuss that here though.

The XPRESS 300 AMR chipset will be cool though. ATi's RAGEAMR Firewall will be on it as well as SATA2 support. Can't wait to see those boards!

Im sorry but ... Xbox beats the living crap out of Nintendos Gamecube sorry for being off subject but I cannot stand it when people say GC has better graphics... It obviously doesnt Xbox is the superior system it also has xbox live.. nintendo has a pitiful online setup. I too grew up on nintendo and love it but Xbox is a much better than GC and the Xbox 2 will be even better. Nintendos goal isnt graphics its price and getting pokemon games for kids to buy.

ALRIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THAT IS ENOUGH!!! YOU HONESTLY THINK XBOX HAS BETTER GRAPHICS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THEN WHY IS RESIDENT EVIL 4 ONLY ON GAMECUBE!!!! I HAVE PROOF!!!! EAT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gamecube at 16 textures per texel per pixel with 4 dynamic lights- 18millions polygons per second generated with 4X Antialiasing Filtering

XBOX with 16 textures per texel per pixel with 4 dynamic lights-3 million polygons per second with trilinear filtering.

You see, XBOX can generate and slaughter the GC only at low texture counts. But guess what make games look good? High polys and HIGH TEXTURES! XBOX can generate all the fucking polys it wants to, but they are useless when its texture engine sucks!!!!!!!!!! NOW SHOVE IT! And if you bring up this subject in this thread again, I will edit your post out! NO MORE IN ATI AMR THREAD!
