CROSSFIRE PIN

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok lets say I have 3 cards. Lets just assume that all 3 are the same GPU processor but different models.



Two of them (Left & Right) ONLY have 1 Crossfire slot on the board



while the third one has 2 (middle)



Would this work fine as if all cards had 2 Crossfire slots on them, thus creating a successful Crossfire setup? Or would we still need all three to have 2 slots? So basically we only put the one with TWO slots in the middle to connect all three cards together.



NOTICE: Picture is an example from Google. Not my actual setup.

Crossfire only works in pairs with XXXX series card to XXXX series card. You can't mix and match if the gens are too far apart. Search for a crossfire compatibility chart.

Thanks for the reply, but that has nothing to do with what im talking aobut. Some cards dont have 2 xfire slots, they only have one. So my question is can I use 1 card that has 2 slots but the other two only have 1 each? Theyre the same cards.

No, cards with one tab do not support more than 2 cards in crossfire. If you try you may damage your cards.
