I don't think AMD has the resources to properly support their products anymore, but why they would make moves like shifting Makedon to CPU marketing has even me scratching my head.

What has AMD been doing all this time? Did they lay off all the people who write drivers?! The 7970 has been in development for years- why would it launch without a Crossfire X driver and still not have one?!
From that article...

Last year, we saw many games launched, many of those were AAA titles, and there were issues with CrossFireX support not being available at launch. In fact, sometimes it took AMD a month or more before CrossFireX was working. Now that Catalyst Control Center 12.1 Preview supports CrossFireX profiles is this issue behind us? Apparently not for the 7970 as we still do not have a CFX driver to put together a CrossFireX review.
Apparently Hardocp is mentally handicapped as everyone else had no issues putting a crossfireX review together...
