Radeon hd 4870 x2

I just got and installed my Visiontek radeon 4870 hd x2. I know it is a dual gpu. My question is; in some games Call of Duty 4 for example in the options you can set it for dual video cards. If I do not select this option is the card running at its full potential?

Thanks in advance.....

  1. A single 4870 will max out COD4 without breaking a sweat even at the highest resolutions.

    Selecting the dual video option means you'll probably get 50more fps (total guess), but a single 4870 averages 80fps or more already. Since most monitors are around 60-75hertz (can't render more than 60-75fps), you might as well just use just 1 4870 and save some energy...unless you're doing benchmarking
