Triple/quad Crossfire can have issues, although you shouldn't be having issues like that with current drivers unless the drivers, the video cards, or something else is faulty and/or configured improperly.

i have a buddy that had the 6990 and tried to Xfire another 6990, had similar issues so he returned the the 6990 and bought a 6970 and ran TRI-Xfire, problems went away...

what's your Specs for the PC? PSU/MOBO/CPU/RAM ??

If you can selectively choose triple Crossfire instead of quad-Crossfire, then you might be fine. Specifically testing the new card, you could connect your display(s) to it and test it without CF enabled or at least with your primary 6990 not included in the CF setup, just the new card, if you can selectively choose what GPUs can be included.

Have you tried lowering the quality/AA/AF/whatever else settings in games?
October 16, 2012 9:10:14 PM

when not running crossfie the fps is between 40-70 fps on max
when crossfire is enabled it drops to less than 10 but ive seen it running at well over 120 on review sites
I dont know what to do
Thanks for any advise.

Like I said, you could try lowering game settings with CF enabled to see if it helps any.
