Crossfire on a 1950Pro

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have an oppurtunity to get another 1950Pro in a trade but the trouble is that it is a 512MB version.

Think that would crossfire Ok with my 256MB version? I know the 512MB version isn't worth it to me to trade just to run it by its self (at least in my opinion) and I would have to purchase a mother board to do the cross fire. So I am trying to find info to see if it would work before I get a bunch of stuff I can't use.

I'm not sure about this, but I think you can use different brands together but they have to have the same ammount a gfx ram.

I think you can, but half the ram in the 512mb version will be disabled, making it a 256mb version.

hmm that would be OK. They are both Saphires so no brand name conflicts.

I sent an email to Saphire asking them about it as well, but I doubt I will hear from them all that fast and I'd like to do the trade tomorrow.

no, Calvin is right. it works like normal - no BIOS flashing or anything. the only catch is that he'll lose half the memory on the 512 card. piece o' cake.
