Different CrossFire
TM
cards may require different methods to enable CrossFire
TM
feature. In below procedures, we use Radeon 2600XT as the example graphics
card. For other CrossFire
TM
cards that ATI
TM
has released or will release in the
future, please refer to ATI
TM
graphics card manuals for detailed installation guide.
1. If a customer incorrectly configures their system they will not see the
performance benefits of CrossFire
TM
. All three CrossFire
TM
components, a
CrossFire
TM
Ready graphics card, a CrossFire
TM
Ready motherboard and a
CrossFire
TM
Edition co-processor graphics card, must be installed correctly to
benefit from the CrossFire
TM
multi-GPU platform.
2. If you pair a 12-pipe CrossFire
TM
Edition card with a 16-pipe card,
both cards will
operate as 12-pipe cards while in CrossFire
TM
mode.
Step 1.
Install one Radeon graphics card to PCIE2 slot. For the proper installation
procedures, please refer to section “Expansion Slots”.
Step 2.
Install one Radeon graphics card to PCIE5 slot. For the proper installation
procedures, please refer to section “Expansion Slots”.
Step 3.
Connect two Radeon graphics cards by installing two CrossFire
TM
Bridge on
CrossFire
TM
Bridge Interconnects on the top of Radeon graphics cards.
(CrossFire
TM
Bridge is provided with the graphics card you purchase, not
bundled with this motherboard. Please refer to your graphics card vendor for
details.)
