crossfire question

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
i have a msi twin frozer ii 6950. Can i crossfire it with a msi twin frizor iii 6950 ? I think only difference is the cooler? Or this might be a dumb question. But i think that's the only difference.

Yes. As a general rule, you can crossfire with any card in the same generation regardless of brand or model.

^^ as said above. Can xfire 6950 with any branded 6950. However cant xfire 6950 with 6970. Clock speeds doesnt matter either however the cards will revert to the lowest speed of the 2 cards.

It's strange that you agreed, yet are completely incorrect.

6950s are the same generational family as 6970s so they WILL crossfire with one another. This is the same for all other generational groups, ie. 7950 + 7970.

And on the topic clocks speeds, if they do not matter why would they revert to the lowest then? That's a contradiction. When Cayman was released, Catalyst changed allowing mismatched clock speeds, so the user controls what speeds either card runs at.

really, keyboard warriors in here...EVERYONE STEP BACK, if im wrong show me the proof. Simple, posting comments like that are unnecessary and not needed. Seriously 12 year olds with keyboards think they own the world.

Why don't you try it before you argue next time. It's bad enough that you are full of misinformation, but you're resolute in it.


How many things were you wrong on?

ill admit i was wrong on the cards . simple mistake. But the info about the cards revolting to lowest clock speeds, do you have info from AMD to back this up outside of your own "knowledge" Im genuinely curious now, as i have had multiple chats and emails with AMD support team when purchasing my old xfire 6970s (they were diff clock speed and revolted to lowest , checked this via MSI afterburner) So please if you can prove this incorrect feel free to do so.
