So I went ahead and decided to purchase a 2nd card that was a 6950 unlocked to a 6970, the same card that I currently have unlocked already. So these Two Sapphire 6950 (2GB x2) cards using 13.9 shown present ability with my drivers automatically detecting crossfire between the two cards. (worked great for Star wars the old republic, no issues!). Anyways..
I ended up buying the 2nd card to play Battlefield 4 with some descent graphics and high framerate capabilities.. I download and launch the game.. Played for a matter of 3-4 minutes, recieving Direct X issues saying that I needed a requirement of 512mb or higher. Figured out it could certainly be a driver issue. Found 13.11 beta drivers.
Had no issues playing the game with these drivers, only to find out that my CrossFireX ability was actually disabled during this time, played for a few weeks like this. Found out about the issue with crossfire, and found the official version of 13.11 drivers for the R9 290X.. when I installed that, rebooted my PC, checked CCC seemed like it reverted back to 13.9, back to my directx issues. But Crossfire was obviously enabled again.
Happened to find 13.10 drivers, was excited. Went ahead and installed those. It Detected Crossfire just fine. But no more directX issues but another error occured, same kind of crash that was exactly the same as my directx issue. So I'm at a loss of figuring out this odd dilemma.
In the meantime I needed to stick with the 13.11 beta drivers just to play the game, even though crossfirex is disabled.. Having no error pop ups at all.
