AMD CEO Alludes to Death of CrossFire and Multi-GPU Trend

AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su spoke yesterday during the Hot Chips conference at Stanford University and was asked whether RTG would bring back CrossFire. Her remarks didn’t instill any hope for enthusiasts who remain attached to AMD’s fading multi-GPU solution, as she admitted it was no longer “a significant focus.”

That’s of little surprise to anyone following the latest Radeon products. While NVIDIA has kept SLI’s spirit alive with NVLink, it sounds like AMD has abandoned multi-GPU completely, with no CrossFire successor on the table.

Su also hesitated when asked whether AMD would bring back CrossFire, AMD’s answer to the multi-GPU trends of a few years ago. “I would say that GPU performance will continue to go at a very fast pace,” she said. “It’s not a significant focus,” she added.
