Closed Dual Sapphire 4870x2 Crossfire Questions...Help Tags: Radeon Intel i7 Crossfire Sapphire Graphics Last response: June 30, 2012 5:46 PM in Graphics & Displays Share wick001 February 14, 2009 1:50:26 AM I just built my Core i7 gaming system: Core i7 920 Gigabyte UD5 6 gigs ram 1000 watt PSU I bought my first Sapphire 4870x2 a month ago, and the clocks in ATI Overdrive go up to 800 GPU / 1000 MEM I just put my second Sapphire 4870x2 in tonight to crossfire, and this card says it's clocks only go to 778 GPU / 980 MEM What is up with that? How can the exact same card and manufacturer have different clocks? I am using CCC 9.1 Another thing, in CCC when you go to 3D settings, when i first installed CCC the little menu's had a animations, now it's just a still frame picture. Is there a bug in this driver? More about : dual sapphire 4870x2 crossfire questions bonanzaguy February 14, 2009 2:14:13 AM Every piece of hardware is going to be slightly different. Just how the same model of CPU will overclock to different speeds. I would assume this comes about from something in the creation process, but maybe someone who knows will post. wick001 February 21, 2009 4:57:38 AM Can anyone else comment on this clock issue?

There is a problem with quad Xfire - ie two X2 cards - whereby only 2 GPUs are recognised. Check out the newest threads on that forum wick001 February 26, 2009 4:23:40 AM Thanks... I've researched a ton on this issue, and really can't find much. I've noticed the bios version of the first 4870x2 I bought is older than the second. Again, In Cataylst ATI Overdrive, why does one card's OC ability go to 800 gpu/1000 mem and the other only to 780 gpu / 980 mem? Same cards, Same manufacturer cjl February 26, 2009 4:37:07 AM Why does it matter? They won't overclock the same, and as long as they are running just fine, I don't really see a significant issue. Now, if only 2 GPUs are recognized, that's a different issue. tooblue4u June 30, 2012 5:28:44 PM fruees said:@ Bonanzaguy: That's a piss poor bit of advice you offered Mate check out the AMD forums: http://forums.amd.com/game/messageview.cfm?catid=279&th...

Please update, as I am looking into adding a second X2 card and would like the info on any known issues. Lol. NVM, I just realized I am posting on a 3 year old conversation.
