[Official] AMD Radeon HD 6850/6870 Owners Thread - Page 363

post #3621 of 6939
I have a Newbie question: I want to crossfire my XFX 6870, can I use another maker like a Sapphire 6870 for the second card or do I have to use another XFX? Also does it have to be the same model? For example can I use a 6850(random) instead.

@ Warblade31

i dont see why not as long as its a 6870 you can even use a pre OC'ed version..

some people do prefer to crossfire identical cards though..
i dunno maybe for looks or it just feels better for them to have 2 identical cards tongue.gif

@Calexan Thank you. I was under the impression that they had to be identical, but your telling me they dont have to be. Is there a trade off though if you use one weaker one vs a faster card?

Heres another question. Can you have one Black edition version that you can OC and then one regular one that is not unlocked?

Thanks for the help!
