    Hi,

    has anybody tested ARK with a crossfire setup of 2 R9 290/290x (390/390x)?

    I know the game hasn't been optimized for Multi-GPU Setups as it's in early access / alpha stage.

    According to Nvidia Users - SLI seems to be totally unplayable.



    I'm asking as i currently own 1 R9 290 - and maybe i can get another one for ~ 150EUR; as i mainly play Ark at the moment - it would be nice to know what i'll get if i'd buy the Card.

    You can add a card yes, but you'll see absolutely no improvement in ARK. As you stated "has not be optimized for multi-gpu setups" includes both nVidia and AMD. I have SLI 770's and it pegs my first card and my second card sits around 4% usage. If you have other needs for the card I say go ahead and get it. If your intention is to play ARK now with Crossfire, it's not worth it at all.
