I recently switched over from sli to crossfire but I think my crossfire setup isn't running as fast as it should.
Here is my system:
amd 9950BE (3.6ghz)
gigabyte 790fx mb
4gig firestix 1066 ram
1000w power supply (just bought it today. My last one kept turning off)
2x 4870 512mb
Ok so when I try to benchmark the cards in world in conflict I get 35fps average at 1900x1080 with everything on high and 4x aa. The low goes to 10fps. Online I saw 4850s doing 50fps average with the same settings.
CF is on in ccc. And I hooked up the crossfire bridge.
What's going on? Does anyone know of a good (free) way I can test my cards?
hmmm.., maybe the crossfire bridge layout has changed? I always thought that both had to be utilized, anyway, how do the benchmarks compare with just a single card as opposed to both cards in crossfire. If they are the same or very close, then it would seem that crossfire is not working correctly, if it's more than a 10% increase then there may be issues.
I might have an extra bridge for you that i could mail, it might take a while to get there, but it's free, lol, let me know if you need one or if it would be easire just to find one.
