AMD motherboard sans crossfire

    When I look at AMD motherboards for building my next computers, all the modern ones advertise "crossfire" technology - even those that accept an APU or have integrated graphics on the board. Is "crossfire" such a simple technology to implement that nobody thinks about omitting it?

    ATI crossfire tech was a big deal back when AMD/Intel dual core stuff was a big deal (mid-2000s), I wouldn't be surprised if they just build it into the motherboards now days.

    If you're looking at boards with many PCIe slots, you often see it. If you are looking at boards with one or two, you don't so much. It's not unreasonable to think that if someone is buying a board with many PCIe slots that they plan to use multiple video cards.
