Folks,

I put a second 5750 card in my new rig and hey presto, the system recognised and installed it no problem and the "Crossfire" option now appears in my ATI Control Centre and is showing enabled.

Thing is, I am now a bit confused. Do I need a CrossFireX Bridge cable or not?


Dee

P.S. Usual apology for being a bit dim.

Yes, the bridge is needed for crossfire hardware enablement.  If the catalyst control center is indicating that crossfire is enabled without having the bridge, then please check that you have the latest version of catalyst installed.

So, here's the latest.

The 5750 card supplied with the NEW pc does not have CrossfireX Ports. (Pics below and here's the manufacturers page http://powercolor.com/us/products_features.asp?id=270) However, Crossfire is running, but with Software Support rather than physical connection via the hardware. They will not be getting any more 5750's with ports on so offered a refund, but that means sending it back, waiting for payment then buying a new card and waiting for that to arrive.

From what I have read in forums and what the support guy said, I am only losing a small amount by Software Support.

As these cards really are just to keep me going until I can buy either a single much better card or a couple of, say, 5870's I'm not going to make a fuss. These cards are already giving me smooth performance in Black Ops at 1920 x 1200 with most everything turned up to maximum so yippee.

However, when I do get new cards, I'll get identical ones *with* the ports so I can bridge them.

Shoot ya later,


Dee

Those cards should work out and offer you a better gaming experience than just one card in your older system.  Enjoy your new system! Smile
