help 3870 in crossfire is slower then 3870 with crossfire off

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
for starters here is my rig
cpu-q6600 3.4ghz 1.4v
gpu-2 ati 3870
ram-ocz gold ddr2 800 oced to 900
mobo- asus maximus
sound card - sound blaster live
hdd- 2sata 250gb
dvd- 1 sata dvd drive
psu antec 1000 wait truepower


ok in all my games i have lowere fps with cross fire on compared to just 1 card in like in crysis
with the gpu bench 1 card 33fps on high dx10
with 2 cards 27 fps dx10
call of duty 4 the fps is all over the place not hitting 60 fps with 2 cards in cross fire

but 3d mark 06 it works fine with a score of 18 000

if you still get a high 3d06 then that means something is up. what is your overclock. and on COD4 did you select multiple video cards
