Simple question...are all these benchmarks I see using crossfire, or are the cards stand alone in the system?

Thanks,
Morgan

Crossfire, crossfire connectors, or a crossfire-supporting motherboard, are not required for multi-gpu mining.

no need for crossfire, none of the gaming rules apply, only thing that matters is gpu clock speeds (which you can overclock much higher by dropping the memory clock), even plugging cards to PCIe x1 slots still result in 100% scaling Smiley i do use a separate worker for each card though, not sure if all this holds true if you have a single miner using multiple cards.... lots of fun but the resulting computer scares household pets lol

Back when I mined with my two 6950s I'd leave it disabled. Performance seemed to suffer whenever I'd use crossfire.

I have never mined in crossfire, so I would say leave them individual.
