I'm looking forward to this but I am holding off on my CF tests until the WHQL driver set (8.7?) is released soon. I have had enough BSODs with these Series 5 drivers to last me a lifetime without complicating things with Crossfire.
I have my doubts about it working, but its worth a shot. I have nothing to lose but patience. worse case senario I rip out my 3850 and throw it out the window... actually yeah, that aint good. remind me to breath

Interesting findings though - With the performance of the 4850 by itself, it makes one wonder - why bother?
Its a good question. For the poer sacrifice, will it make much sense? Maybe I can get the performance of a 4870, but for what, twice the watts? Still interesting. Plus.. tri-fire is hawt.
