Can somebody with a CrossfireX set up test this please?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok, here's the deal, when I duplicate my screen with a single 7950 and play a full screen game, the display stays on both screens. When I enable CrossfireX, the display signal for the secondary monitor goes away. At first I thought it was a DX11 vs DX10/9 issue, but it's not. Crysis 3 runs on both monitors, Metro 2033 even with DX11 enabled runs on only one and Darksiders which is DX9 runs on both.

Anybody mind testing with their own rigs? If possible, try a set-up with monitor/hdtv and monitor/monitor.

Thank you.

Are you hooking your displays to the top card only? If you hooked displays up to both cards there's your problem. Please detail how exactly your displays are connected and to which ports on the cards.

I connect my monitor and my computer on my main GPU with a DVI to DVI cable.

I connect my HDTV to my main GPU as well using an HDMI to HDMI cable.

I know the second GPU cannot be used so I don't connect anything to it. If I disable CrossFire X, no problem. If I enable it, it mostly works but once I launch a full screen game or program, the secondary display loses its signal.

With monitor/HDTV, I get the same. Metro 2033 and Metro Last Light only display on the primary monitor, however Crysis 3 does not display on my secondary monitor.
