List of All AMD CrossFire Graphics Cards for PC

CrossFire is a multi-GPU technology from AMD which allows you to run maximum of 4 GPUs on a single motherboard. It is very similar to the Nvidia’s SLI multi-GPU technology in many aspects. You can really achieve much higher performance in games and other applications when using multiple graphics cards in CrossFire setup. Here in this post I am going to talk about AMD CrossFire technology and also provide you the list of all AMD graphics cards that supports CrossFire.

Requirements for CrossFire Setup

Here are the various requirements for setting up CrossFire setup on your computer using multiple GPUs.

CrossFire Ready Graphics Cards

The first requirement for setting up a CrossFire configuration is two or more CrossFire Ready AMD Graphics Cards (up 4 GPUs). Unlike Nvidia SLI, two graphics cards having different GPUs may work together in AMD CrossFire mode depending on their compatibility. You can look at the compatibility list below of CrossFire graphics cards showing which AMD graphics cards are compatible with another in CrossFire configuration.

CrossFire Motherboard

The other major requirement of Crossfire setup is Crossfire Ready Motherboard or Motherboard that supports CrossFire. Not all motherboards having multiple PCI Express x16 graphics card slots support Crossfire as some of them support SLI only.

CrossFire Bridge (not always)

Not all AMD graphics cards especially the latest ones require CrossFire Bridge for CrossFire Configuration. But most of the older generation AMD Radeon graphics cards require CrossFire Bridge for working in Crossfire. AMD Radeon Graphics cards that do not require CrossFire communicate through PCI Express Lanes or Bus.

CrossFire Drivers

You do require drivers for CrossFire for setting up multi-GPU configuration for AMD Graphics Cards. Normally the CrossFire drivers are included in the generic AMD Graphics Card drivers which you can download on the AMD website.

Powerful Power Supply

For a CrossFire setup you need a powerful PSU of 1000 Watts or above. This is because multiple graphics cards consume lot of power and you might end up blowing power supply or may be other components if your PSU is weak to hold the CrossFire setup.

Types of CrossFire

AMD CrossFire – AMD CrossFire or also known as CrossFireX is the standard CrossFire setup where you plug in two or more discrete graphics cards in the PCI-E x16 slot of the motherboard. After that you can enable the CrossFire using the AMD Drivers.

AMD Dual Graphics – In this the graphics processor of the APU and discrete graphics card work together in CrossFire.

AMD Hybrid CrossFire – In this integrated graphics on the motherboard and discrete graphics card work together in CrossFire.

CrossFire Configurations

2-Way CrossFire – In this type you can run two single GPU graphics cards or one dual GPU AMD Radeon graphics card in CrossFire mode.

3-Way CrossFire – In this you can configure three single GPU AMD graphics cards in Crossfire mode.

4-Way CrossFire – Here you can run four single GPU AMD graphics cards or two dual GPU graphics cards in CrossFire setup.

XDMA CrossFire

This is the latest generation CrossFire technology for newer graphics cards where No CrossFire Bridge is required and the communication between the graphics cards is carried on by PCI Express Bus (PCI Express 3.0) through XDMA. PCI Express 3.0 lanes provides up to 17.5 higher bandwidth i.e. 15.754 GB/s for x16 slot compared to the external CrossFire Bridge which provides maximum bandwidth of only 900 MB/s.

Important Note: AMD CrossFire works on Window 7 and higher operation systems.
