Guys, I recently purchased a second ATI 6970 graphics card for my system to be run in CrossFire configuration. I expected graphics performance in games to double but FPS rate is almost the same as that with a single card. I have measured the FPS rate in "Assassin's Creed" and "Dead Space". What could be the issue? I have attached screenshot from GPU-Z:
No Performance Gain from CrossFire Configuration
CrossFire is an online game with an optimum graphics not as high as other games, such as, Assasin's Creed or Dead Space. I believe that you already have the optimum graphics for CrossFire. Just make sure that you have the highest resolution through CrossFire's online resolution and make sure it's 32-bit. Another thing is that, you also have set your video card settings to its optimum settings. To do this, you have to open the Catalyst Control Center through the desktop. Just right click on the desktop screen and you should have as a choice. Once it's open, click on Graphics, located on the upper left hand part of the screen and select 3D. You may adjust the settings there, whether you want it for optimum performance or quality. Click Graphics again, then Desktop Properties. You may adjust the desktop setting to its optimum setting for better quality, which will also affect CrossFire's in-game graphics. Just keep one thing in mind, if you better game play, adjust the settings for performance. For me, I always adjust it for performance since it would have better FPS that way. No delays. Hope this helps. Happy FPS gaming.
