intel supports crossfire but AMD does not support SLI?

why does intel support crossfire yet AMD does not support SLI? i have been looking for an AMD motherboard since i have an AMD CPU so that maybe i can someday get another GPU and set up SLI but i dont want to have to buy 2 new GPUs to run crossfire since i went with nvidia. would there possibly be a motherboard that im not finding that is AMD that does support SLI?

  1. Intel support is different from NVIDIA support. NVIDIA supports SLI, AMD supports Crossfire. Intel and AMD CPU's support Both depending on the chips features. :D Most of AMD motherboard supports SLI given that it is 2 NVIDIA card :D. You could not combine an AMD card and an NVIDIA card unless if its for computing purposes. :D

    If you want to SLI on AMD and have a AM3+ CPU, go and get a Asus M5A99X or equivalent from other companies. 990FX chipset supports SLI
