Can you Crossfire these? -ASUS

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Wondering if you can crossfire a 1GB card with a 2GB card: ASUS 6950 1GB with a ASUS 6950 2GB?

If so, what would the performance be like? Not sure my single 6950 2GB can handle 23" eyefinity and don't have room for another triple slot 6950 in my system. Thanks!

yes u can, and not sure about the 2nd question but i should think 2x 6950 with 3gb graphic memory combined should be fine

Yes you can, But I believe it will limit the 2GB card to 1GB to match the other. Its most likely enough to run your Eyefinity together just fine.

My understanding is that it will limit to 1GB, but I don't think it will be enough for eyefinity. I would mix vendors and get a 2GB dual slot card.

When you crossfire cards, your vram does not accumulate. If you crossfire two 2GB cards, you don't get 4GB vram. You only have 2Gb of usable vram. If you crossfire a 2GB card and a 1GB card, the first will be limited to 1GB for a total of 1GB.
