Windowed mode gaming and CFX/SLI

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,

Need a bit of info on something, with all these new cards coming out. I usually play games in borderless windowed mode, so I can easily switch to my side screen, without minimizing the game.

So, can people with multiple monitors and GPUs please tell me if AMD CFX and NVIDIA SLI work in windowed mode, while having a sidescreen attached? By "work", I mean that both cards are actually getting used in the windowed game on the main screen.

I know CFX did not work in windowed mode before (when I had 2x6970), but not sure if it's still the case.

Thanks!

You need to tweak it though control panel for some programs, but works for me.

Thanks.

Anyone with inputs about Crossfire?

I was thinking about new AMD cards for a new build, but I guess I'll have to go NVIDIA, if I lose CFX in windowed mode. frown.gif
