    ATI uses "Crossfire" technology instead of SLI. Same concept mostly, different application.

    SLI requires that the cards be identical.
    Crossfire can support 2 cards that are different models.

    SLI = Nvidia
    XFire = ATI

    As previously said, no, they are two completely different things.
