The Tech Report reviews the ASUS A8R-MVP, a very inexpensive motherboard that combines 2 chipsets, ATI's Radeon Xpress 200 CrossFire Edition and ULi's M1575 southbridge.  Head over to see what advantages that gains over a motherboard that uses ATI's SB450.


"Fortunately, the CrossFire Edition chipset has an ace up its sleeve. Its north bridge is capable

of interfacing with alternative south bridge chips, including those built by ULi. Asus has taken

advantage of that capability with the A8R-MVP, a CrossFire-capable motherboard built with ULi's

M1575 south bridge. The M1575 fills in many of the features missing from the SB450, and it

shouldn't suffer from the I/O performance problems that afflict the SB450."
