Review on Newegg states that it is not crossfire compatible as there is no ribbon connector and is a misprint on Gigabyte's part so beware.

There are actually two versions (revisions) of this card. It this price I would guess it is the one without crossfire connectors. It will do software crossfire but you will lose about 50% of the added performance depending on the generation of the ATI/AMD northbridge. It is a match for the old 4870 at about half the power usage.
Looking at the clock speed 775mhz this one does not have the crossfire connectors. It is also slightly underclocked. It appears to ge the same card as the FirePro 4800 CAD card. If the advanced Open GL traces are not cut then this is a very interesting CAD card for 1/2 to 1/3 regular price.
