Hello, I have a 5770 and I am thinking of extending the life of my card by crossfiring it with a 6770. I already done the research and I know they are fully compatible. The question is, I am not so sure about my motherboard, which has hybrid crossfire support and I think these type of motherboards are not fully crossfire compatible. Here is the motherboard:
As far as I know you cannot crossfire two different model cards together. Are you sure you can do this, if so, please provide a link. I thought hybrid crossfire referred to the ability to crossfire a card with the integrated graphics of an AMD cpu.
You may want to double check, as I thought this is not possible, although I could be wrong.
If you know for sure I would really appreciate a link, because it is nice to learn new things.
The reason why I think that my motherboard might not be compatible with crossfire is because I thought I read somewhere that hybrid crossfire motherboards are very restrictive in the card models that can used for crossfire. Also, in the chart above my motherboard chip isn't listed as a compatible chip.
By the way, my card is a HIS 5770, I am planning on getting a XFS 6770.
