Hello

Well I saw few post in this forum that mentions that AMD processors bottlenecks crossfire.Is it true?

I'm getting a Phenom 955 C3 and for now I'll use one ATI 5850 but in future I'll most definitely buy another 5850 and use in crossfire. So now I wonder would it get bottlenecked by the processor and if yes, by how much? Does i5 bottleneck less?
Thanks.

There *might* be an argument for Tri-SLI and Quadfire setups, based on some testing of multi GPU scaling which was done something like a year to a year and a half ago... For two GPUs? No way. Use whatever you want.

Well I don't know exactly which threads were, I just stun upon them in the week and got me worried a bit. Thanks for the answers.
