First time going multi GPU. I just got the 4850X2 set up after a few driver gimmicks and noticed that in CCC, CrossfireX is enabled. Is it supposed to be enabled? Is there some setting I'm supposed to mess with int he BIOS or anything?

I use to have a 3870x2 and never had to enable anything.
Nothing in bios should need adjusted.

There are two GPU cores, so you essentially have two graphics cards. So yes, crossfire should be on.

Thank you for the help. +Rep

Crysis Warhead sure runs a lot better with 8x AA 1920x1080

The CF bridge is internal, so no option to enable it. It's always enabled.

It's an internal crossfire bridge, so you don't have to enable it as it's enabled right out of the box.

sorry for bumping an old thread but I have almost the same question.

Do I have to enable CF in CCC? Because I can disable and enable it. I have a 4850x2. Does this 'internal CF' mean I should keep crossfire in the CCC disabled?

Running the latest 11.5 catalyst drivers by the way.
