will this work in crossfire without crossfire cable
im just wondering if these two cards HIS Hightech H180GTO256DVN Radeon X1800GTO 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 CrossFire Ready Video Card
will be able to do Crossfire without this crossfire cable
(cable is on far right)
Was also wondering if its true that the crossfire edition cards are going to eventually stop production, and that ATI will just make two identical cards that can be crossfired like SLI.

you need a crossfire edition card. If ATI didn't change the requirement to have a crossfire card when they upgraded from the x1800 to the x1900 series, i doubt they will stop.
I posted the same link last time. Take some time to read it.

well i heard that the crossfire edition cards are just a way to get crossfire out there quicker to deal with nvidias SLI. eventually i think they will switch to two crossfire cards instead of just having one here look at these

P.S here is the link for the x1800GTO
if you look at features it says crossfire support, which usually means that it doesnt need a crossfire cable

looks like the GTOs can run without a cable or CS card with the newer drivers:
One of the hotty new ATI features is of course Crossfire. Crossfire normally allows you the ability (with the proper mainboard) to hook up another X1800 Crossfire edition (400 bucks) graphics card into your PC, which doubles up performance. BUT .. ATI recently released drivers (Catalyst 6.4 and newer) that make it possible to run for example two GTO's in one system with no need for a master card or that dreaded dongle cable.
