I have the following setup-

i7-4930k, r9 290x in crossfire, Asus Rampage  IV black edition, 16 gigs of corsair vengence ram 500 gig samsung evo 800 ssd, with the graphics mother board and cpu all water cooled adequatly.( check out my overclock.net account for the full rig specs http://www.overclock.net/u/386515/hokochu). I am also running 14.6 beta drivers and using windows 8.1. I try to play wildstar on max graphics and i am getting at most 30 fps, and usually more like 22 fps. when I measure the vram in gpu-z it only takes up like 2 gigs usually and at most 3. i am thinking that my crossfire is not enabled for this game because the performance is much lower than other games that are far more graphically intensive, and also most crossfire games read double the vram used when the crossfire is active. surely wildstar takes up more than 1 gig of vram while being played on an eyefinity setup. does anyone know anything about how to turn the crossfire on? is this a driver issue that can be fixed soon?

That was a significant increase in video quality for sure, and much better frames. I got an 8 fps boost from that change, except I was using 8x antailiasing. I will do some more tests for the vram usage a bit later

Bump R9 295x2 owner here, and not flipping happy there's zero crossfire support.  Game plays like crap at 4k without it.

Make sure you take black_zion's advice into strong consideration, because the software must be appropriately coded for amd drivers to have good crossfire scaling in the first place.

Something we all tend to ignore or forget, myself included.

Or send a form to amd driver support. and let the guys know of this.

 

Use and mess with radeonpro, and see if it can help you enhance your framerate or scaling.
