1900xt + 1950 in Xfire?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
will my X1900 and a 1950 work in crossfire together? i didnt think that it would, but it is in the same series i guess?

and can i do old crossfire with a crossfire 2 internal card?

I do not think it works, I'll try and find some proof.

And no you cannot use a dongle to connect 2 internal connector cards - as the connector needed for it on the back of the card will not be there.

nope. They need to be from the same group (e.g. x1900, x1800, x1950, etc)

You can mix say x1900xt and x1900gt but not as you wanted above.

Well according to the link it seems to work (as long as both are from the external connector generation).

I've always been informed that you cannot mix (the x1900 and x1950 as they have different chipsets)

now I'm

Thanks for that link (+1 rep)

It seems that it does work then, but the X1950 would have to be a Crossfire edition from what I can see.

you can crossfire a 1900 and 1950 if one of them is a master card and you use the dongle.
