You can read it in the conclusion page:
This is still the reason I will never own dual AMD cards. Their crossfire setup is utter junk, and to be honest, until AMD gets their drivers straightened out generally speaking, I wont own an AMD card. nVidia drivers have been (for me) the most stable for years and years.
Yes and yes, it is hard to formulate a quasi-rethorical statement, where I already know the answer. Since the days of looking up the reviews on Tom's for a 6600GT 256MB, AMD has disappointed in the benches where it should have atleast shown a frame or two of playable 3D graphic - and "Fail" was the theme of some of the review's graphs - and just as I was comming closer to even consider buying an AMD card for the home machine (for the second time; 9800 has been the only one so far and even that was a year or so after it came out) - EDIT2: CF driver support is poor. EDIT: Love the 24-pin style power, could have just used one from a motherboard - I know the pin layout is different. :)
