Crossfire problems

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello, I recently just built a new computer for the first time and I'm having some trouble getting Crossfire to work on my XFX 6970's.

I have it enabled in the ATI Control Catalyst Center (11.7). I've tried to do a full, fresh re-install of all ATI drivers and folders and that didn't work. I've tried to load them in one at a time, that didn't work. Tried to switch out the ribbion, that didn't work. Went to older drivers, didn't work.

My computer is recognizing both cards as in Device Management they're both there, working properly. It's just that it won't work in crossfire for some reason.

Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated!

You got me! I'm going to test it. What program did you try to run Crossfire with. By programs I mean games, softwares, benchmarks

Well, this is my first time using benchmarks but I just ran unigine 2.5. I've used steam as well and it was telling me as it gathered my system information that I only had 1 gpu and no Crossfire enabled.

It's working my Crossfire. Otherwise you will have half of the FPS.

NOTE: I ran this on all STOCK CPU GPU RAM, no Overclock in this test.
