ATI Radeon HD 5970 2GB in CrossFireX (Page 1)

Having been impressed with the new HD 5970 in standard and overclocked form, now it's time to see what magic can be made with two of these bad boys.

Introduction

So, we've looked at the HD 5970 in single form and we've also seen the massive OC potential of the card. You have to wonder what else there is to do? - We'll, that's easy; install our second HD 5970 into the system and see how CrossFireX goes.

We're not going to pretend we aren't excited about testing CrossFireX, nor are we going to pretend we don't expect some big numbers out of the setup. For performance junkies, unless there are some real gains in this four GPU configuration, they're simply not going to be interested in the setup.

Since the second card arrived from big red themselves, there isn't a whole lot to look at. We'll have a quick peek at the card, just in case you haven't had a chance to see what's happening with it. We'll also snag a quick GPU-Z screen shot to make sure CrossFireX is working before we simply get into the benchmarks.
