AMD confirms that their Radeon Navi RX 5700 series graphics lack CrossFire Support

Does anyone care?



Read more about AMD's RX 5700 series graphics cards lacking implicit CrossFire support.

Considering most developers, AMD and nVidia are practically not developing it (multi-card support) I honestly don't think it's an issue.

Whilst it would be nice to run SLI'd 1080Ti's and get a performance boost, most of the games I play now don't support SLI or it's broken so not worth running, and because of that buying a 2nd hand 1080Ti would be a waste of money.

If AMD have killed off crossfire support on these card's then I think it just shows how much of a waste of time it is these days, even with DX12 supposedly making it "easier" to support multiple cards.

Either way no skin of my nose as I wasn't going to be buying one of these anyway because they are just not good enough, and I'm not about to drop £400+ by the time the AIB cards come out for lower performance, and probably the same power usage as my 1080Ti.

SLI and Xfire are both entirely redundant in gaming and have been for a fair few years.

There was a time when no single GPU could drive a 1440p monitor, prior to that you'd struggle to run 1080p. hence the need for multi GPU.

That time has passed, we have cards that can run 1440p 144hz / 4k 60hz solo.

If your mad that you can't reliably use 2 GPUs to achieve your target, you bought the wrong damn card to begin with.

It's always been a bit of a crock, IMO. Both companies used to push the marketing hard, then failed to woo the Devs. Certain games were awesome, but one card now is always awesome.

I see Nvidia bleating about how the 2070 Super supports SLi. I see the inner scumbag inside them is still alive and well.

Well.. I have yet to see a card do 1440p @ 144hz on max detail. But yeah I think the last true SLI supported title was Witcher 3. Since then SLI actually has a negative impact on fps. Division 2 for example now reports 5-10 fps LESS than single card.

Luckily there isn't a single title released these days that interests me, so I am just sticking with W3/Destiny2 and older backlogged games where it does benefit me.

Its a sad day when even I state that from here on I will be going single card setup. I havent gone that route since my GTX280 days.

I suppose BF5 does support it well, but you have to block DICE trying to override the setting when you run BF5.exe. So to me that doesnt count.
