hi all.

so me and my son both have a pc with a gigabyte r9 270 in.

my question is, is it worth doing a crossfire with his when he upgrades his gpu next week? is there a big performance gain?

many thanks in advance

CFX isn't all roses for non-xdma, but you will notice a decent bump in performance (FPS). But also a jump in power consumption - Noise - Heat -  and sometimes - Microstutter and uneven frames with out vsync. It has definitely improved, but still not up to par with SLI or CFX using XDMA.

Definitely do it. Just ensure that your power supply can handle it first...
