  Crossfire - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A crossfire (also known as "interlocking fire") is a military term for the siting of weapons (often automatic weapons such as machine guns) so that their arcs of fire overlap, yay.
Three things changed between WWI and WWII rendered the crossfire obsolete: the advance of armored vehicles (especially tanks), the advent of aerial bombardment, and the invention of the proximity fuze.
Tanks were invented in WWI specifically because they were immune to machine gun fire, and could thus cross no man's land to destroy the machine gun nests.

 Crossfire (TV series) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Crossfire was a current events debate program on CNN.
The show was hosted by two pundits, one of whom was chosen "from the right" and one "from the left," thus purporting to provide both sides of the political spectrum.
The initial hosts were Bob Beckel on the left, a Democratic Party political consultant and manager of Walter Mondale's 1984 campaign for the Presidency, and Tony Snow on the right, a former speechwriter for the first President Bush.

 X-Entertainment: Don't Get Caught Up In The... CROSSFIRE!
Crossfire traps players with its seemingly simple and easy directions -- you think this'll be an absolutely mindless way to kill a few minutes, but it'll end up being one of the most intense competitions of your life.
As mentioned earlier, Crossfire rocked the charts in the early 90's mainly because of a clever series of commercials that made the game seem a hundred times more epic than it actually was.
It barely talked about how Crossfire was played, but since half the shit in the commercial was either on fire or singing along to a song Stan Bush smacked himself for not writing first, kids understood it to mean that they absolutely had to own the game.

ATI have developed Crossfire with the same connection principals as 3DFX did with the voodoo 2's, with external connectors, this is in stark contrast to the internal bus method implemented by Nvidia.

Though the smaller sizes are intended for strong winds and the larger sizes for light wind conditions, the operating range of each Crossfire will largely depend on the flyers skill level with this type of kite.
The performance level of the Crossfire is suited to intermediate and experienced pilots and those with flight experience of less sophisticated quad line ram-air kites.
The Crossfire to use will depend on the Surface; (Skis on snow or ice, Kite Buggy on soft or hard sand, grass or hard ground, or Kite Board on water), the Wind Speed; flyer Skill and Experience and flyer Weight.

 Crossfire
CROSSFIRE was a spin-off from DNAgents, created by Will Meugniot and myself.
The star of the comic was Jay Endicott, a bailbondsman who — as seen in DNAgents — came to possess the costume and burglary equipment of Crossfire, a noted, high-tech industrial spy.
The old guy was a cold-hearted, law-breaking mercenary; Jay is a large-hearted, law-enforcing crusader who finds the dual identity handy in righting matters that go unsolved by the police or unpunished by the courts.

 Beyond3D - Which was nice.   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Desktop graphics processors built by ATI from R300 and upwards have a number of hardware elements that were specifically designed with scaleable, multi-chip rendering in mind, and the CrossFire system ATI have put in place for their multi-board desktop platform presses these into service, and even elements from MAXX are utilised.
Fundamentally, though, ATI’s CrossFire solution is similar to NVIDIA’s — in its initial form it uses a motherboard that supports two 16x PCI Express for graphics slots and couples two graphics boards together in order to increase the potential rendering performance over a single board.
On this initial introduction, although somewhat evasive on an actual reply, ATI look to be initially making CrossFire applicable to their platforms only, something that we hope they will soon readdress and offer the capability on other platforms that can support splitting of the PCI Express graphics system into two 8x lanes.

 Crossfire
Written by Richard Brooks (who later became a director of some note) and John Paxton, Crossfire is the story of a bigot who murders a Jewish-American and tries to pin it on the least likely member of his unit.
The terrible sadness that is bigotry is just as pertinent today as it was in 1947, and the cast and story are still just as viable.
Crossfire holds up well even though so much has changed with the passing of time, and in a way, this is a very unsettling realization.

When gamers add a CrossFire Edition graphics card, which includes the CrossFire compositing engine, to their Radeon Xpress powered system they are doubling their graphics rendering potential.
With a variety of settings, they can use the rendering horsepower to get up to twice the performance of a single graphics card, or they can choose to put the horsepower to work increasing the image quality of their games, making them look better than ever before.
The Radeon X800 CrossFire Edition graphics cards, which come with either 128 MB or 256 MB of graphics memory, can be paired with any Radeon X800 series graphics card.

Fundamentally, though, the principles behind Crossfire are very similar to NVIDIA's SLI in that it makes use of the PCI Express interface in order to allow two boards to operate in tandem, sharing much of the graphics load.
