Default crossfire gpu compatibility

So, ive seen the charts from amd but i can't find one with the more recent 8xxx and 9xxx/r9x 2xx listed on it.

I have an asus 7850 with 2gb of 256bit ddr5 and was wanting to get a more powerful gpu. i was looking at getting a 7870 8870 or a r9x 270. All of which are more or less the same gpu. I know the 7870 will be just fine as the lead gpu in a crossfire config, but can i use my current 7850 with the newer models?

CPU: i3-3225 GPU: ASUS HD 7850
RAM: 8gb G.skill Disk: 128SSD 2x1TB in raid 0
corsair h80 Power: 500w ASUS p8b75 mobo

Default Re: crossfire gpu compatibility

You can crossfire anything from the same series. For example:

78xx + 78xx =

R9 + R9 =

79xx + 79xx =

79xx + 78xx =

R9 + 7xxx =
FX-8350 @ 4.7 cooled by H80, 32GB Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 2133, Asus Sabertooth 990FX, 2x Radeon HD 7850 2GB in X-fire, 500GB Samsung 850 Evo, 4TB Seagate, 3TB WD Black, 2x 1TB WD RED in RAID 0
