Crossfire in 2020 idea

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have 3 monitors, The center one being 144hz refresh rate and the only one i care about. I currently have a rx580 MSI ARMOR 8G and want to get another so i can maximize my fps in esports games and other low intensity games. at the time of posting this, the current price of a used 580 on ebay is around $100-$150 usd.

 

Would it be worth?

Any reason why? i cant think of any way to increase fps higher and more effeicently than this. Unless dropping 300 more dollars on a very new gpu.

most games don,t support dual GPU...and it's a hassle...and it's not worth it.

Sell you current card, and use the money toward getting a new more powerful card instead.

Crossfire/SLI is dead. You'd just be adding in a whole lot extra heat and power consumption for little to no extra performance, or sometimes even worse performance compared to the single 580.

Just sell yours for 150 and get a 5600XT/5700 or 2060.

in the end id be spending about the same amount of money for almost the exact same result anyways though

Most modern games don't really benefit from crossfiring, so a crossfire would not be worth it to me. To me, you should get a more powerful gpu than do a crossfire, powerful gpu is what games benefit from not crossfire.

Probably his best bet in his gaming. I agree with @Jeppes Just sell your 580 and get a more powerful gpu like 5700xt or rtx 2060. I'd look at used 5700xt or rtx card for more power on a lower budget

it's NOT like you think it is...you wont double your performance by adding another card, so forget about it...

we're telling you: it's trash, it's not worth it, it's not what you think it is...

it would be AWESOME if it was, and we would ALL be running two cards...but it's simply NOT. That's just how it is ok :)

Except it's not the same result. Crossfire will only improve your performance in games that support it. Fewer and fewer games bother to do so. There's also issues like micro-stutters.

 

A single faster card will improve your performance in any game.

You don't double your performance with cf 

It's not like having 2 580's gives you the performance of 2 580's 

That's not how it works , it never even did lol.

There is almost no benifits for it today.

No, you will be spending much more times finding good enough settings or hacks to make it work. 
I never own  a CFX/SLI setup but i had few experienced helping some customers with theirs and it was almost a nightmare for me. 

 

Time=money, and sometime happiness according to some ex-CFX/SLI owners. xD

You'd spend the same amount, but the crossfire would perform worse than the powerful gpu. Because barely any games benefit from crossfire. Most games benefit from powerful gpu, and not crossfire, so don't do a crossfire. It's not worth it. We all are telling you it's not worth it. Just get a powerful gpu instead like a 5700xt or rtx 2060. Don't do a crossfire

Okay this is from a long time ago. Games have changed and they used to benefit from crossfire, but no longer do. That photo you are showing us is just a bunch of wooha. The guys who wrote it got their heads in lalaland. Just trust us and don't do a crossfire. Get a 5700xt or 2060 instead. Trust is. A powerful gpu is a lot lot better than doing a crossfire. believe us

Reason is you will never get that performance that you think from 2x rx 580. Its throwing money away but its your money not my.
