Default HD 5770's crossfire.

Hi.

new to the forums. Basically i have a desktop with 2 HD 5770's. Im not sure weather my GPU's are even in crossfire. Playing crysis I get 70 fps on average on max settings so one would presume crossfire would be in affect? but HW monitor only picks up the one gpu for the temps. Does crossfire have the symbols to indicate its in use like when SLI has the green boomarangs?


thanks for the help.

He probably gets 70fps when standing still or something, but not when anything is moving on the screen.

VGA = 640 x 480. What is your resolution?

And the general rule on the internet is pics or it didn't happen.

EDIT:



Unless you have the most 1337 overclock ever or are playing at a useless resolution, I just don't see how it's possible.

Yeah it does. I'm just really curious as to how you managed to beat 5870 crossfireX with a pair of 5770s. It should take four of them to do that.
