Hi,this is a very unique setup, I guess, but it works quite well so far.

 

The 6850 is set up in the first/main PCIe slot (x16 2.0) and has only one screen connected to it. This screen is set up as primary for working and gaming.

The 3850 is put into second PCIe slot, which provides 4 lanes only.

 

The screens connected to it are for TeamSpeak, Skype (screen 2) and bowsing the web or watching movies (screen 3).

So this is no crossfire setup and I don't think this is a eyefinity setup too.

 

On Desktop everything works fine.

But games wont launch.

DXDiag will crash until I skip the Direct3D tests.

The Catalyst Control Center crashes too.

 

For the 3850 I installed latest lagcy driver (13.1), for the 6850 the current driver is used (13.4).

The device manager shows no errors, date of driver for 6850 is 03/28/2013, its version is 12.104.0.0. Date of driver for 3850 is 11/16/2012, version 8.970.100.7000.

 

Any ideas?

You can't have normal and legacy drivers installed at the same time and expect them to work properly.

Either go back to 12.4, or get a 5000-series or higher to replace the 3850.

Uh, I didn't know that. I thought I had read every single release note carefully, but I must have missed something. Thx, will try12.4 then.

 

/edit:

Installing 12.4 didn't help
