Introduction
2.2. Hardware Installation
Step 1.
Locate the PCI Express x16 slot. If necessary, remove the metal
cover from this slot; then align your graphics card with the PCI
Express x16 slot, and press it in firmly until the card is fully
seated.
Make sure that the gold edge connector of the graphics card is
securely inserted.
Step 2.
Replace the screw to fasten the card in place, and replace the
computer cover.
After installation, remember to connect the power cable to your graphics card, or the system
will not boot. Do not touch the card when it’s operating to prevent system instability.
Step 3.
Plug the display cable into your card; then turn on the computer and monitor. To connect a flat panel display
to your graphics card, use the DVI-I connector. To connect an HDMI monitor to your graphics card, use the
HDMI connector. To connect a DisplayPort monitor to your graphics card, use the DisplayPort connector.

2.1.1. How to enable the AMD CrossFireXTM technology?
• CrossFireXTM Configuration
If you are planning on using this graphics card as part of a CrossFireX system, the following is required:
- A CrossFireX certified motherboard with two PCI Express x16 slots and correct chipset driver
- One or two CrossFire bridge interconnect cables
Step 1:
Install two CrossFireX graphics cards of the same chipset on a CrossFireX-supported motherboard and connect the graphics cards via two CrossFire bridge interconnect cables (Figure 1). Then users can enable the
CrossFireX technology through the graphics card driver.
Two CrossFire bridge
Two CrossFire graphics cards of the same type.
interconnect cables.
(Example: GV-RX195P256D-RH)
Figure 1
Step 2:
After installing graphics card driver in operating system, when an AMD CrossFireX configuration is detected
for the first time by the AMD Catalyst display driver, AMD CrossFireX support is automatically enabled, and
the best possible GPU combination is selected based on the hardware configuration.
If AMD CrossFireX is not enabled, access the AMD Catalyst Control Center (please refer to Page 14). From
the AMD Catalyst Control Center, enter the CrossFire menu and assure to select the Enable CrossFireXTM
check box (Figure 2).

Hardware Installation
AMD Graphics Accelerator support HDMI output which can handle both audio and video
signals. However, audio output from the onboard audio controller or the external sound card will
be disabled when HDMI output is activated.
If no need for HDMI output function, set the onboard audio controller or the external sound card
to be the default Sound Playback device to obtain audio output from your system.
Expansion cards contain very delicate Integrated Circuit (IC) chips. To
protect them against damage from static electricity, you should follow
some precautions whenever you work on your computer.
1. Turn off your computer and unplug power supply.
2. Use a grounded wrist strap before handling computer components. If you do not
have one, touch both of your hands to a safely grounded object or to a metal
object,such as the power supply case.
3. Place components on a grounded antistatic pad or on the bag that came with
the components whenever the components are separated from the system.
The card contains sensitive electric components, which can be easily damaged by
static electricity, so the card should be left in its original packing until it is installed.
Unpacking and installation should be done on a grounded anti-static mat. The operator should be wearing an anti-static wristband, grounded at the same point as the
anti-static mat.
Inspect the card carton for obvious damage. Shipping and handling may cause damage to your card. Be sure there are no shipping and handling damages on the card
before proceeding.
DO NOT APPLY POWER TO YOUR SYSTEM IF THE GRAPHICS CARD IS
DAMAGED.
In order to ensure that your graphics card can work correctly, please use
official GIGABYTE BIOS only. Using non-official GIGABYTE BIOS might
cause problem(s) on the graphics card.

3D:
 Standard Settings
The Standard Settings page provides access to a
universal slider control where you can simultaneously adjust all of the standard 3D settings for any
type of 3D application. The slider enables you to
adjust for overall system performance, overall 3D
image quality, or a balance between the two.
This page is useful when you are not aware of which
type of 3D settings your application uses, or when
you want to use an overall adjustment control that
rapidly configures your application.
 Anti-Aliasing
Anti-Aliasing (AA) is a rendering technique designed to remove jagged edges, shimmering, and
pixelation problems that are common in rendered
3D images. Rather than determining the color to
display for each pixel by sampling a single location
at the pixel’s center, anti-aliasing samples multiple
locations within each pixel and blends the results
together to produce the final color.
Anti-Aliasing can be set to favor either system
processing performance or image quality, or the
application can decide:
• Setting for performance is best used when the
3D image is animated and smooth motion is the
most important consideration.
• Setting for quality is best used when highly detailed and realistic 3D objects is the most important
consideration.
• If you are unsure of how to configure anti-aliasing, use the Use application settings option. Your
display will automatically adjust to the application’s
requirements.
 Adaptive Anti-Aliasing
Adaptive anti-aliasing is a technique that applies a
combination of multi-sampling (MSAA) and supersampling (SSAA) on 3D objects to improve edge
smoothness and fine detail. This feature renders
3D objects containing transparencies more realistic,
providing exceptional levels of image quality while
maintaining performance.
AMD Series Graphics Accelerator
- 30 -
 Anisotropic Filtering
Anisotropic Filtering is a technique that preserves
detail on surfaces that have three-dimensional
perspective and fade away into the background. It
works best when used in conjunction with Mipmapping.
Anisotropic Filtering can be set to favor either an
increase in system processing performance or
improved image quality:
• Setting for performance is best used with applications that display objects with smooth, simple
surfaces, like those seen in CAD applications.
• Setting for quality is best used with applications
that display highly detailed scenes, backgrounds,
and textured objects, like those seen in 3D games.
• If you are unsure how to configure anisotropic
filtering, use the Use application settings option.
Your display will automatically adjust to the application’s requirements.
 All Settings
The All Settings page combines all of the principal
3D features onto a single page, without any preview window, allowing for quick access and adjustment. This page is useful when it is not necessary
to preview the adjusted settings because the effect
is already known or understood.
Color:

Brightness control, and the overall contrast use the Contrast control.

The following troubleshooting tips may help if you experience problems. Contact your dealer or GIGABYTE
for more advanced troubleshooting information.
Check that the card is seated properly in the PCI Express x16 slot.
Ensure that the display cable is securely fastened to the card's display connector.
Make sure that the monitor and computer are plugged in and receiving power.
If necessary, disable any built-in graphics capabilities on your motherboard. For more
information, consult your computer's manual or manufacturer.

secondary display.)
 Make sure you selected the appropriate display device and graphics card when you install
the graphics driver.
 Restart your computer.
Press <F8> on your keyboard after system starts up. When the Windows Advanced Options
Menu appears, select Safe Mode and press <Enter>.
After getting into Safe Mode, in Device Manager check whether the driver for the graphics card
is correct.
 For more assistance, use the Troubleshooting Guide located in the Windows Help or contact
your computer manufacturer.
