Crossfire question

Postposted on Thu Mar 01, 2012 11:43 pm

Quick question.
My friend has a 6850 and he is getting ready to add a second one.
He uses alot of monitors. If they are in crossfire can he still use ports on both monitors for the desktop space? or will only the ports on the first card work?

2D mode, you are allow to ports on any of cards in the chain.

3D mode, you are only allow to use ports on the "master" card.
