Default how to enable Hybrid CrossfireX??? - 06-13-2009, 04:23 | posts: 812 | Location: Australia,melbourne

Im trying to enable crossfireX and im reading my gigabyte manual which states that:

set internal gfx to UMA + Sideport
Set UMA framebuffer to 256mb
Surroundview disable
Display first onboard

I did those things, opened up CCC with my onboard running and no crossfire. Also used my ati 4850.

So am i missing something?

If you're trying to crossfire a 4850 with your onboard, you can't do that. They won't work together.

No you can't use it at all. It's meant to be used with a 3400, I think. Certainly not a 4850 though. You wouldn't want to anyway. Your 4850 is faster than the Hybrid crossfire would be.
