We discussed AMD RX Vega CrossFire not being talked about at launch or even at the demos and that AMD RX Vega CrossFire support was not there even if you had 2 GPUs. That was then, this is now as AMD RX Vega CrossFire support has been added in the new driver update.
We talked about AMD RX Vega CrossFire for professional GPUs and we saw some benchmarks that revealed close to perfect scalability which is not something that you see every day. It is common knowledge that adding in another GPU does not give you double the performance and you can expect 1.5X performance at the most.
AMD RX Vega CrossFire scalability is almost perfect and as seen in the benchmarks included below, it is as close to double performance as you can get. The benchmarks have been conducted on graphically intensive titles at 4K with all settings maxed out and you can see that 2 AMD RX Vega GPUs can get you well past the 60 FPS mark with all settings maxed out.
It is important to note that as of right now only 2 cards in CrossFire are supported and this is the same thing that Nvidia has been encouraging for some time now. AMD is shying away from multiple-GPUs and the same can be said about gamers and developers. You do not get SLI or CrossFire profiles for games like you used to back in the day.
CrossFire might not be the best investment if you are a gamer and most people will tell you to get a better single GPU rather than having 2 mediocre ones. But if money is no object and you want to live on the bleeding edge then I guess you could do whatever you want. You can download the new update here.
