AMD announced that its latest driver update, Catalyst 8.3 unlocks significant improvements for ATI graphics fans with new CrossFireX. CrossFireX allows gamers to use quad and tripe GPUs along with Hybrid graphics.

Hybrid graphics is able to take advantage of integrated GPU and a discrete GPU at the same time for improved performance. The quad GPU support is apparently referring to the ability to run the dual GPU 3870 X2 in Crossfire mode.

"AMD packed ATI Catalyst 8.3 with a double-barreled set of leading technologies to simultaneously push the Ultimate Visual Experience(TM) to new heights and to a wider population of PC users," said Rick Bergman, senior vice president, AMD Graphics Product Group. "We deliver industry firsts that make a visible difference to PC users, whether it's CrossFireX and the first ever quad-GPU performance on Windows Vista, or ATI Hybrid Graphics that bring a new level of performance to mainstream PC platforms."
