how does that work are there different cables used and i am looking into the crosshair 4 board soon to be released looking to possibly pair four gpu's to that any ideas/

You will need two crossfire cables and the cards have to have dual cable notches in order to connect them all together. However, they may make a four card Crossfire cable, but I haven't seen one yet. I build multi-GPU computers almost every day, so that has been my experience.

Sorry, you will need three regular dual crossfire cables, because you will connect cards 1 and 3 together and 2 and 4 together, and then you will connect 2 and 3 together.

Toms built a 4-way crossfire system in a AMD build series here http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/amd-enthusiast-cros... , SLI requires the unique connector where all cards are connected, you can google for the picture.




Ok here is the 4 way sli-bridge, its very rare (who does it)


3 way sli


SLI + crossfire bridges are different .

has anyone seen the new crosshair 4 coming out ? i think it will require a single slot card to do 4-way crossfire any suggestions?

truthfully, not to be a downer, but i don't see how you could run 4 cards in one slot... if i understood your post correctly. you would max out the bandwidth of that slot by a crapload. stick with one card with one pci-e slot

what he meant was 4 single slot cards (since the last 2 are right next to each other

personally i would get trifire 5870's, it would wreck the quadfire 5670 since the 5670's aren't powerful and quadfire (and sli) have horrible scaling with 4 cards
