P8H61-M PRO, does it crossfire?
Jun 11, 2012, 6:05 AM
I would like to ask if the Asus P8H61-M PRO can crossfire amd 6850 because 1 of the slots are PCIe 2.0 x16 (x1 mode) and the other one is a standard PCIe 2.0 x16.
Here's the specs for the motherboard

The motherboard feature list does not include Crossfire. Better get a single powerful card.

Yes. Sound cards or any PCIe device that does not need more than 1 PCIe lane... Graphics card suffers a little at 4 lanes & is minimum recommended for crossfire (with some performance penalty).
