XFX HD 5670 1GB tested - 5. CrossFire Support

Review: Good bundle at a discount



Unlike reference cards, XFX’s HD 5670 1GB comes with CrossFire connectors. This means that you can boost your graphics performance by adding another card. However, the HD 5670 isn’t quite aimed at gamers so we’re not sure that many users will opt on CrossFire, but the mere fact that it is possible with XFX D 5670 1GB is pretty neat.

Two Redwood chips can score a nice frame-rate for gaming at 1680x1050.

Using two HD 5670 cards without the CrossFire bridge will result in the following message:

5670_no_crossfire_support

If the setup is done right than you will be advised to enable CrossFire for enhanced performance.

Some partners, such as Axle3D, sell the HD 5670 with one CrossFire connector and that will be enough for turning on CrossFire in ATI Catalyst.
