Crosfire rx480 - Page 5

post #41 of 44
Yes I would say so. It looks like your core percentages are fairly moderate compaired to your GPU usage. So that's not terrible performance for those modern titles running on decently priced hardware.

I now have disabled 2nd monitor in order to use freesync. Otherwise, my main screen constantly blinks and artifacts.

Sucks about the multimonitor and freesync issues, but I'm glad you got it somewhat working! IDK about your frame counter, I don't think I've used that one before and it doesn't seem to show the 2nd GPU. Do you have any software that can log your clock speeds and utilization over time? You could run it in the background then check to see that the 2nd card was under load. You could also check if you're CPU bottle necked.

Everything seems to be working great now. I can run Doom, CSGO, and Rise of the Tomb Raider on Ultra Settings at 4k with playable frame rates. The latest Doom Patch was supposed to give support to crossfire, but whether crossfire is enabled or disabled I don't see any performance gain/loss. I have seen a few videos on youtube of rx480 crossfire running Doom. The counter on their screen doesn't show a 2nd gpu either. I can notice an increase in performance on CSGO at 4k with crossfire enabled however. So, I know its working. It goes to show you, that this old rig can run 8 gb rx480 cards in crossfire after all! Just have to fiddle around with AMD drivers for a couple days... 1440p seems to be the way to go in most games. My frame rates crush the ones I was getting with my single 3gb 7950 I had prior to the upgrade. Thanks all for the support! Hopefully this is my last troubleshooting post.

Yay! I'm glad you got it sorted. Sorry it was more of a headache than I made you believe at the beginning.

Now you just a 3rd 480, then to discover you need more pcie bandwidth to make full use of it, then a dive into 2011. Or maybe Naples will have a good workstation offering with lots of pcie and high clock speeds!
