low end cards do not require a crossfire bridge(mostly pretains to gpu's without a 6 pin connector, so the strongest card that does not require a bridge is the 7750)


so essentially, you should have the option on your computer to crossfire. a bridge is unessessary

which is what i am saying. the only cards that require a crossfire bridge are solely the cards that have 6 pin requirements. Since you do not have 6 pins on the cards, you do not need a crossfire bridge.

while both cards are inside the computer, check bios to make sure that both cards are detected by checking the PCI-E slots

Do you actually have both of those cards in your possesion. If so then you should test them both individually in your computer before you even think about trying to crossfire them. Put in the 6670 and make sur everything works and drivers recognize the card. Then do the same with the 6570. If either one does not allow your computer to boot then that card is defective and Crossfire won't work anyway. If you can get them both to work then you may be able to crossfire them. No bridge required.

Unfortunately, according to the Crossfire compatibility chart, only the low end HD5xxx series cards (marked in blue) do not require the Crossfire bridge. All of the HD 6xxx series cards require it:

yea the graphics chart says if i was to run my 6670 and 6570 i would have to connect with crossfire bridge but neither of them have the bridge conn so they arent the right type of cards? id have to make sure theyre amd and not ati is this correct

Not all HD6670s are Crossfire Compatible. In fact, looking at the selection Newegg has, none out of 25 are Crossfire compatible. If your card does not have the Crossfire connection port at the top of the card, then it is not Crossfire compatible.

because it saves the aftermarket heatsink manufacturers money if they opt not to add something in, and offer the product at a lower price. A 6670 is an entry level gpu and I would generally believe most people who end up using the 6670 usually will not crossfire, as the cards price is low enough that one is most better off selling it and upgrading to a higher up card, as the card is sub 100$
