CrossFire™ Overview 13
CHAPTER 5:
Welcome to CrossFire™
ATI CrossFire™ is the ultimate multi-GPU performance gaming platform,
using ATI CrossFire™ ready motherboards and ATI graphics cards.
CrossFire™ Overview
This section provides an overview of the main features and configurations for
CrossFire™. These topics will be covered in more detail in other chapters of
this manual.
Allowable Radeon® X1950 Pro CrossFire™ System
Components
The basic requirements of a Radeon® X1950 Pro CrossFire™ system are:
• Two Radeon® X1950 Pro CrossFire™ graphics cards.
• A CrossFire™ Ready motherboard.
For an up-to-date listing of CrossFire™ certified motherboards see:
ati.com/crossfire.
CrossFire™ Rendering Modes
A CrossFire™ system has four possible display modes:
• SuperTiling
• Scissor Mode
• Alternate Frame Rendering
• Super Anti-aliasing.
14 CrossFire™ Rendering Modes
The first three are performance-oriented modes, while Super Anti-aliasing is
a quality-oriented mode. Each mode uses a different method for dividing the
workload required to render a 3D image across multiple GPUs. Only one
mode can be in operation at any given time.
The ATI Catalyst™ display driver will automatically select the best of the
three performance modes when a 3D application is started, without requiring
user intervention. The user can also choose to improve image quality by
selecting the new Super Anti-aliasing modes in the Catalyst™ Control Center.
For more information on CrossFire™ Rendering Modes and the Catalyst™
Control Center, see the Radeon® X1950 Pro User’s Guide.
15
CHAPTER 6:
CrossFire™ FAQ
The following are frequently asked questions about CrossFire™.
For the latest information, please consult the CrossFire™ Web site at:
ati.com/crossfire
1
What combination of products are required to build a working
CrossFire™ system based on the Radeon® X1950 Pro?
Two components are required:
• Two Radeon® X1950 Pro graphics cards.
• Two CrossFire™ Bridge Interconnects.
• A CrossFire™ Ready motherboard with two PCIe™ x16 slots.
More information on the requirements for each of these components can
be found within this FAQ.

Cables

2
What motherboards support CrossFire™?
Motherboards from other manufactures will be certified as CrossFire™
Ready when they become available. For a comprehensive list of
qualified motherboards, please consult the CrossFire™ Web site at:
ati.com/crossfire
3
Are there specific CMOS motherboard settings for CrossFire™?
On some motherboards, the CMOS may be set by default to support only
a single PCI Express® x16 slot. Ensure that both PCIe™ x16 slots are
enabled in the CMOS.
4
Are there any software settings required for a Radeon® X1950 Pro
CrossFire™ to work?
When all of the hardware and software has been properly set up and
installed, you can access the CrossFire™ aspect in Catalyst™ Control
Center:
To access and enable CrossFire™ in Catalyst™ Control Center, do the
following:
• In Advanced View, click CrossFire™ and check the Enable
CrossFire™ box.
When CrossFire™ is successfully enabled, all display devices except the
one used by CrossFire™ will be disabled. Multiple monitors/displays
that are disabled when CrossFire™ is enabled reappear after CrossFire™
is disabled.
If you installed your Radeon® X1950 Pro cards in the primary and
secondary PCIe™ slots and enabled CrossFire™, when you restart your
computer CrossFire™ will automatically be enabled. Otherwise, you
must again enable CrossFire™ upon restart.
Note: In order to enable CrossFire™, the two Radeon® X1950 Pro cards
must be connected together using two CrossFire™ Bridge Interconnects.
17
5
How are the graphics cards connected on a CrossFire™ system?
Two Radeon® X1950 Pro cards are connected by two CrossFire™ Bridge
Interconnects, connecting the custom DVO ports on each card together.
To see where the DVO ports are located on the Radeon® X1950 Pro
cards, see the picture of the Radeon® X1950 Pro CrossFire™
implementation.
CrossFire™ Bridge Interconnect Cable
6
Which games/applications work with CrossFire™?
CrossFire™ works with all 3D games and applications. If Catalyst™ A.I.
is enabled in the Catalyst™ Control Center software, the optimal
rendering mode available for the application is automatically selected.
7
Is a driver profile required to make CrossFire™ work?
No. CrossFire™ is enabled by default for all 3D games and applications.
8
What are the rendering modes, and what are their specific
advantages?
The following dynamic rendering modes are available:
• SuperTiling - CrossFire™ renders alternate 32x32 pixel squares in a
fine-grained checkerboard pattern. This configuration increases
image-rendering quality, as each card processes half of the complex
3D objects in the pixel squares.
• Scissor Mode - each graphics card renders up to half of the display,
either vertically or horizontally depending on the game or application.
18
• Alternate Frame Rendering - the two graphics cards are used to
render alternate frames of the display. This configuration increases
the detail of the 3D objects each card can render, as each card handles
half of the total number of frames.
The features above are performance features settings automatically
selected by ATI's Catalyst™ Control Center.
You can instead enable Super Anti-aliasing, which is a display quality
mode selectable using Catalyst™ Control Center.
• Super Anti-aliasing - improves image quality by combining the
results of full-screen anti-aliasing across two graphics cards in a
CrossFire™ configuration. The two graphics cards work on different
anti-aliasing patterns within each frame.
9
What happens if you pair two CrossFire™ graphics cards with
different architectures?
In order for CrossFire™ to work, the Radeon® X1950 Pro graphics card
must be paired with another Radeon® X1950 Pro graphics card.
10 On what basis are different rendering modes chosen?
When Catalyst™ A.I. is enabled in Catalyst™ Control Center, it
determines the optimal rendering mode to use, based on the application
or game being used. The default rendering mode is dependant on both
the hardware configuration and the application being run; typically it
will be either Scissor or SuperTiling mode. If Catalyst™ A.I. is not
enabled, any Direct 3D® applications that are running on a system based
on graphics cards with 16-pipeline graphics processors will use
SuperTiling Mode.
11 What type of performance improvement is expected?
Performance enhancements experienced on a CrossFire™ system depend
on the application or game being used. Performance improvements can
be increased up to 100%, and the latest graphics-intensive programs will
generally see over 80% performance improvement at high resolutions
and image-quality modes.
19
12 How many independent displays can be connected to a CrossFire™
system?
While CrossFire™ is designed for optimal use on a single display, it is
possible to drive multiple monitors using a CrossFire™ system when
CrossFire™ is not enabled. On a standard CrossFire™ system, it is
possible to drive four separate sets of monitors and still have one of
those displays as a dedicated CrossFire™ display. If the motherboard
contains an integrated video connection and SurroundView™ is enabled,
more displays can be added.
Additional troubleshooting tips are covered in the Reference chapter.

Troubleshooting 23
CrossFire™-Specific Troubleshooting
Problem
Possible Solution
CrossFire™ is Not
Functioning
In order for CrossFire™ to function, the CrossFire™ Bridge
Interconnects must correctly connect the CrossFire™
graphics cards.
1. Connect one end of the CrossFire™ Bridge
Interconnect to the internal VMO connection on one of
the cards.
2. Connect the other end of the CrossFire™ Bridge
Interconnect to the corresponding internal VMO
connection of the other card.
3. Repeat Steps 1 and 2 to connect the second
CrossFire™ Bridge Interconnect.
4. Connect the DVI-I connector to your monitor.
“Before
CrossFire™ can
be enabled, you
need to close the
3D application or
video playback
that is currently
running.”
You cannot enable CrossFire™ in the Catalyst™ Control
Center if a 3D application, game, or video playback, such
as a DVD movie, is running.
Close all open 3D applications, games, and movie player
applications then enable CrossFire™.
CrossFire™
Aspect in
Catalyst™ Control
Center is Not

Ensure the CrossFire™ Bridge Interconnects have been
correctly attached. The CrossFire™ aspect is only
available when the two Radeon® X1950 Pro graphics
cards have been correctly installed and connected
together.
“CrossFire™ Is
Currently
Unavailable.”
This error occurred because CrossFire™ did not correctly
detect your graphics hardware or there is a problem with
the software.
• Check the graphics cards are installed correctly.
• Check the interconnects are installed correctly.
• Close all running 3D applications.
• Re-install the Catalyst™ Control Center.
For information on installing the software see the Getting
Started Guide that came with your graphics card.
