Goodbye CrossFire Xpress
AMD recently completed its acquisition of ATI and absorbed ATI.com
. Nevertheless, ATI’s two performance chipsets remained branded by ATI. AMD’s CrossFire Xpress 1600 and CrossFire Xpress 3200 chipsets still carry ATI branding. AMD will be changing the names of its ATI CrossFire Xpress 1600 and CrossFire Xpress 3200 chipsets according to the latest roadmap.
The ATI CrossFire Xpress 1600 chipset will be renamed to AMD 480X CrossFire. This is the second time the
chipset has been renamed. It was previously named Radeon Xpress 200 CrossFire until ATI changed it to CrossFire Xpress 1600 to match the
then newly released
Radeon Xpress 3200 nomenclature
. Features of the AMD 480X CrossFire remain unchanged. The chipset still supports two half-speed PCI Express x16 slots in CrossFire with a PCIe link to the SB450, SB460 or SB600 south bridges.
The enthusiast ATI RD580 CrossFire Xpress 3200 will be renamed AMD 580X CrossFire. Features of the AMD 580X CrossFire will remain the same. The chipset will continue to support two full-speed PCIe x16 slots with a PCIe link to the SB450, SB460 or SB600 south bridges.

Let me try: sarcasm: witty language used to convey insults or scorn
I don't think the poster meant this at all. I read it as witty humor and kidding around.
At any rate, I hold journalists to a higher standard. If they screw up, then they're mere posters with a byline. The only way they will improve maximally is to give them tough love.
Get comfortable with the small mistakes, and they just keep getting bigger and more frequent. Human nature.

I meant to add, I have the highest respect for journalists/posters not having English as their first language, but nonetheless posting in it.
I suck at 2nd languages and therefore envy and appreciate their effort.
