Hey Everyone,

So I just bought an AMD Radeon RX 580 and I want to put on my current rig. Specs are:

AMD Ryzen 7 3700x

32g CORSAIR VENGENCE PROS RAM

MSI MPG X570 GAMING EDGE WIFI

RTX 2060

I want to run both GPUs at the same time, is it possible and how do it.

Im using both cards to mine.

you can't SLI or crossfire them, but you could put your card that use primarily in the top slot, and the one you use for mining in the bottom slot.

OP said they want to use the cards for mining, which should work fine. I had a 2060 Super + Vega 64 in the same system at one point and never had any significant issues. Just put the card u want to use for gaming (I assume the 2060) in the top slot and connect that one to the monitor and put the 580 in the bottom slot. Mixed GPUs for mining isn't uncommon and mixing AMD & Nvidia GPUs has been officially supported since Windows 10 dropped, the limitation being games can only use one at time but compute applications like mining have no such limitation and will use any cards installed.

Figure out what miner you want to use then start it. Configure the card settings in the appropriate gpu program and that’s is. Not much else to be done. Unless you wonna flash the red card.

So attach the the 2060 in the top slot and the 580 in the bottom. How do I got about setting up the 580 if it is not recognized in the device manager? Would I need to set up the 580 first then reconnect my 2060?
