post #6251 of 6939
are they on 8x and 8x or 16x and 4x? I didn't understand the whole deal when I bought my MB which is 16x and 4x... when I bought my MB I thought crossfire was crossfire and I planned (and possibly still plan?) to get another 6870. I've read a bunch of sites with a bunch of different information and from what I gather it isn't as good as it could be, but it would be better than just one, though not quite as good as a single card that's twice as much $.

And there are some games (like Far Cry 3) that dislike crossfire. I had stuttering and ripping that I didn't had with a single card, very weird.

Mine are 8x and 8x, Tbh i've had no problems with crossfire in regards to scaling etc, the performance different between 16x and 16x tiny.

I was lucky and didn't have any stuttering problems, but a friend who runs crossfire 7950 did, very weird indeed.

The stuttering is probably driver related. I remember when I was playing Crysis 1 on my dual 5770 system and I had flickering textures and stuttering. But the problem went away after I did a driver update. I dunno about Far Cry 3 though. Haven't got it yet.

Ah right, I'm using latest betas so maybe they help.

Damn, that's high. And what under load? it must feel like devil.gifbiggrin.gif
It's gets on my nerves, such 'high' temps. It's been so long since I had an air cooled gpu. When my new gpu comes I'll Snorkle.gif it as soon as possible!

bounces around 60-80oC below 85oC being safe
