To be fair he has had is 290x's since launch if i recall. It is a mixed bag though, and it does seem that the gimpworks games continue to have the most issues. I really wish we had a way to tweak CF like Nvidia guys do with nvinspector. Its a tough time right now for multi gpu.
If the current trends continue though i don't see AMD coming out on top by promoting CF on polaris. Given Nvidia's gpus having a stronger single gpu performance may win out in the short run if AMD depends on CF/MDA.
If you want a plug and play gpu just get one card. Amd or nvidia is the same.
When you will learn that multi gpus are not going to offer trouble free gaming experience.
Crossfire and SLI sucks and they should stop marketing these solutions until AFR dies and software catch up with new techs.
The problem with CFX is not trouble about trouble free gaming. It either works or does not. As a user you can not do anything to try to fix it so you always have to wait if there is ever a fix. In the past 1.5 years Almost all games that have had CFX problems have been abandoned 1-2 months after trying to fix it. Now you cant even expect for most games to get a fix. Some people want Day 1 drivers. I do not mind. I will wait even 1 year if I know they will fix CFX but they do not seem to care. As bad as Dual GPU setups are SLI is at least better than CFX in games where both configurations should work if AMD tried.
