hello
i am using AMD A8 laptop with my device manager showing both display adapters as
AMD Radeon HD 8500M and
AMD Radeon R5 Graphics.

also the SPECCY software shows the two graphic cards and states that crossfire is disabled in both.

the system properties tells me that i have 6GB of available graphics memory with dedicated as 3072 MB and 3368 MB.

i've tried updating bios,display drivers and even AMD CCC.
still couldnt find ' enable crossfire' to check.

please suggest me really good solution to the problem.. :??:

I have a lenovo g50-45 laptop

8GB


so does that mean crossfire isnt possible in my case?
because it says 'disabled' and not ' not supported'

Use gpu z first, if it shows crossfire available u stand a chance. (Otherwise u should stop). Send a pic of your gpuz spec on both your gpu if possible.

Goodle amd 14.12 omega MODDED driver. Be sure to follow instructions and uninstall your old driver completely.
