    great video, is it the same kind of procedure for nvidia cards when in sli mode?

  2. aruffell says:

    Yes it is, you will get an SLI bridge instead of a CrossFire bridge and will use that to connect the cards together.

    is it possible to crossfire two GPUs from different generation? and can we do that with integrated GPUs?:confused:

    No they both have to be the same model

    Yeah… I was wondering about that too. Thanks!

    Has to be same GPU, not same card.

    If I had a HD 6950 1GB and a HD 6950 2GB would it downgrade the 2GB ram card to 1GB like what happens with Nvidia SLI mode?

    For example you can have a Asus HD6950 DirectCUII paired with an AMD reference HD 6950 but you cannot pair it with a 6870.
