Introduction

MESH Titan X1800 FIRE system

Gamers who want the fastest framerates now have two viable multi-GPU technologies to consider. On the one hand, there's NVIDIA's SLI, which allows you to connect two or more GeForce 6/7xxx-series cards in tandem for increased rendering speed that will come in handy with shader-heavy titles run at high resolutions and high degrees of image quality. The other option, available right now, is to choose ATI's CrossFire that teams up cards in a similar fashion.

MESH, purveyors of PCs for nearly 20 years now, has opted to showcase the talents of CrossFire with its Titan X1800 FIRE system.
