    Is Eyefinity + Crossfire Possible?

    So I sold my 2nd 5870, running just 1 @ about half the frame as crossfire but plays 2x smoother.

    Bad Company 2 @ 5760x1200 on 5870?

    BC2 crossfire eyefinity is broken. You get great fps but it feels laggy unless you go back to 1 card or just 1 monitor. There are a few threads here and more on widescreengamingforum with this same problem. Dont make the same mistake I did and blow 400$ on a second card, 150$ on a bigger power...

    Who overclocks their HD 5870?

    @ stock voltage around 940-960 on both my XFX 5870's, I cant touch the memory, even 1210 causes problems. If I max out @ 1.350 then I can get around 1070mhz but the fan needs to be around 80-90% to keep it below 85c

    Is Eyefinity + Crossfire Possible?

    ^ just did some testing. In crossfire or single card with single monitor, vsync gave BC2 mouse feel a nasty "lag" feeling Ive felt in most games when vsync is turned on. I like my mouse at 2000dpi and 75% in windows, twitchy if you will, and vsync is always a no for me. If i maxed out the...

    MSI Big Bang Fuzion 1156, two x16 crossfire?

    I cant seem to find a clear answer, if I pick up this board can I use my two 5870's in Ati crossfire (not hydra) @ x16/x16 pcix? or would it be x8/x8 like my current MSI gd65? Thanks guys!

    Is Eyefinity + Crossfire Possible?

    ^ nice! Its good to finally see someone else having the same problem with crossfire eyefinity and bc2 feeling crappy unless you have 120+ fps. I almost made the trip to frys to pick up a x58 board and i9 for the two x16 lanes, lot of money to throw around on a possible fix tho :(

    Is Eyefinity + Crossfire Possible?

    ^ p55 both slots running at x8 2.0 according to gpuz. I have 1 5870 pushing my 3x1080 and I have to have everything on low to get the 90-120 fps I like out of a single card, and thats OC'd to 1050mhz. With 2 cards I can get double the fps almost exactly, just feels slower and more "stutter"

    Is Eyefinity + Crossfire Possible?

    ^ dang it I was almost about to go find my second bridge. Makes me feel better I'm not the only one turning off crossfire because of this. Some games don't seem bad, dirt2 seems fine and smooth.

    Is Eyefinity + Crossfire Possible?

    x2. Picked up a second 5870 (off craigslist so no return :mad:) in the hopes of turning up BC2 on my 3x1080p eyefinity setup. Sure I get double the framerate but it feels super laggy and even at 100fps doesn't feel as smooth as a single card at 60, I have to be pushing 120fps to get that same...

    New Radeons -- Triple monitor, no eyefinity possible without DP?

    Its late, hot, underpowered, needs 2 much power, but has new dx support!

    ummm maybe reread? I cant figure out where you went wrong. This thread is a lighthearted trip down memory lane when ATi release a card a little late that underperformed and was hot. O and also had sweet flames and I agree I wish more cards had transparent covers like that, i dig it. I feel like...

    Its late, hot, underpowered, needs 2 much power, but has new dx support!

    "Its late, hot, underpowered, needs 2 much power, but has new dx support!" was referring to the 2900xt not fermi. I'm very aware there are MANY differences one of many being fermi is actually faster that the competition, another being its Red and has flames....calm down boys was just havin a laugh.

    Its late, hot, underpowered, needs 2 much power, but has new dx support!

    ^ sure, was just saying some things were similar. I picked up a 7800gtx at launch then didnt read anything really about new cards until I was buying a new one years later. I completely missed the 2900 generation and most of the 8800 news/hype so its been interesting reading up. Internet ftw...

    Price Decision: BFG GTX 260 216 maxcore VS Gigabyte 5770

    My roomate has a GTX260 216 and games @ 1920x1200. I had 2 extra 19" monitors I gave him so he could rock eyefinity as well. We went and picked up a 5770 and long story short the 5770 went back, zero idea why :confused:. Both cards overclocked the 5770 was faster or even depending on the...

    Trying to understand CF microstuttering

    If your on the side of the fence that doesn't think you can "feel" a difference between 40 fps and 60fps then sli/crossfire will be fine for you. If you can feel the difference between 60-80 or even 80-100 then stick with a single gpu setup.

    3x1080p here and at first I was kinda bummed with BC2 running on my system, changed to dx9 and everything on high including HBAO or whatever and get 70-100fps constant online. Even turned up the AA in ati CC, I have some screenshots of dx10vs9 i made to compare and there really isnt much if any...

    Trying to understand CF microstuttering

    microstuttering isnt something you see as much as perceive it. defaultluser is right as long as you keep your fps above your monitor refresh rate it wont be perceived, this is why there is so much miss information and people saying " i have 2 gpu's and zero microstutter". I spend a couple weeks...

    Can anyone find a HD 5970?

    I've been checking newegg every day just for kicks, havent seen any new ones in weeks but every few days for just a hour or so a open box one will pop up for 510-530$, I've come so close but I'm on the "microstutter is real" side of the fence and I couldn't deal with the 2x5850's I had and from...

    Eyefinity on 3 - 47" !!!

    lol @ gimmick comment. 3x1080p' here, shift plays great. Because of both the POV making things "skewed" or fish eyed a little on the side monitor and because there generally inst nearly as much action on the side screens, the framerate drop isn't linear. You generally dont see 3x less...

    Eyefinity HD 5870 2GB vs 1GB

    I'm running a 5760x1080 with a 5870, crysis @ 5760x1080 with mixed quality settings 2xAA will be fine at like 50fps but as soon as i would hit 4x it would become a unplayable 5-10fps, is this the card running out of vmem? I can duplicate the same results between no AA and 2xAA if i have quality...

    VGA coolers that exhaust heat

    I dont know of any but share your concern that most aftermarket coolers dont push air out the back. I dont like having 20 fans and holes all over my case tp vent air, I like a clean tower, air in the front out the back.
