    Hi.
    How do i disable a core.. or disable crossfire on this card?
    Ive read that GTA IV has issus with this card with crossfire that the game can freeze totaly and have to hard boot the computer.. and i my case this happens alot in this game..
    So they are saying that disabling crossfire should do the trick..
    So how do i disable crossfire?

    You enable or disable it in CCC.

    You could also try Ati Tray Tools.

    But the word on the interwebs is that you can't disable Crossfire on X2s.

    Or, you can disable one of the GPUs in the windows device manager.

    Just disable catalyst ai, that will stop the second gpu from running. Conversely, always make sure cat ai is on for crossfire to work.
