Solved 5870 & 5850 in Cross Fire Tags: Radeon Intel i7 Crossfire Graphics Last response: July 8, 2010 4:20 AM in Graphics & Displays Share Rogue77777 July 8, 2010 4:05:13 AM Hi All, I currently have an XFX 5870. I'm looking into adding another card in crossfire, but don't want to spend another $400. Will I gain or loose proformance by adding a 5850 or is it not worth it? I mainly use my I7 machine for gaming. Thanks More about : 5870 5850 cross fire Best solution sabot00 July 8, 2010 4:13:24 AM You will gain performance, the scaling should be quite good, I would overclock the 5850 so their performance is similar though.
