I believe in one of the new NFS games (Hot Pursuit) you get worse performance with CF enabled though I may be wrong.
post #7 of 22
you did not specify something important

Which "Need For Speed" game? lol

If its the new one *Hot Pursuit - that game works better with a single card... in crossfire it doesn't perform well for some people(I am one of them)... but in some cases it works fine on CF

Hopefully the profiles do help you... if not.. then you know whats the fix(disable CF).. and if this was not teh game hahaha my bad for assuming the wrong NFS game
