Anyone that has troubleshooted problems with AMD/ATI graphics card crossfire configurations will probably know about Ultra Low Power State (ULPS). ULPS is a sleep state that lowers the frequencies and voltages of non-primary cards in an attempt to save power. The downside of ULPS is that is can cause performance loss and some crossfire instability. This also holds true for laptops with or without crossfire.

To disable this Windows feature either set the ULPS value to "0" in the registry, or use this tool which does it for you.

Deathcrush just pointed me to your "fix". Cheers man, it worked magic.

Now i can actually use the crossfire, rather than having to shut down one gpu to play.

Thanks again.
