Which GPU are you using? As far as I know xfire has been a part of catalyst drivers since 2005.
What GPU do you have? And unless you have two cards or more and enable Crossfire it will not use any Crossfire tech. At least on my Sapphire HD 6950 and Sapphire HD 7950 the newest drivers have always been the best on my systems.
