Cross fire

Recommended Posts

Hello members og the occ. I have a question about crossfire. I have two motherboards with different mode in dual crossfire. They have 16x mode and 8x mode. Will 16x give me the best performance, or is it x8 mode dual the maximum speed you will get no matter if you have 16 or 8x mode. I think i read somthing about this issue, and it was said that 8x mode is the maximum, but i cant find this article again.

It depends on which cards you're using and if the slots are 2.0 or not.

Both mbo's have 2.0 and i am using two 5870

wont bottleneck at all, I know the gtx 295 doesn't get crippled at all and it's roughly equal with the 5870
