The dirt card is preloaded with an unlocked bios, but the card is limited to 1 physical crossfire bridge junction.

You could try by using the dirt cards as the first and last card in a tri/quad setup.

Re : TOXIC and TRI-Fire YES can be done ....

Re : DIRT3 and TRI-Fire, see what tsm106 explained, you'd need at least a 3rd different card w/ two CrossFireX bridges on it.

Re : DIRT3 and Un-Lock, YES it's POSSIBLE there have been several that have done it, and potentially as easily as Un-Locking the TOXIC, however the Success RATE is well BELOW that of the TOXIC cards, and also MANY DIRT3 cards are now being reported as shipping with the Antilles GPU chip in them has made the chance even lower than before which was about 33-50%, read this ... http://www.overclock.net/graphics-ca...l#post15470647 ... the last interaction between Arizonian and myself regarding the DIRT3's.

So if what your intending to do is TRI-Fire ... the TOXIC's IMO would be a safer choice that all 3 may unlock, and will connect properly w/o a 3rd bastard middle card in between
