CrossFire Supported Between R9 300 and R9 200 Models

AMD released their 15.7 WHQL driver suite last week. With it brought some new features for AMD graphics card owners. One of the most interesting is the ability to pair a Radeon 300 series graphics card with a similar spec’d chip from the R9 200 series. When the Fury X and R9 300 launched they had a separate driver from the rest of the card, but now with the unified Catalyst 15.7 WHQL driver you have this new ability.

You can now pair a R9 390 or R9 390X with an R9 290 or R9 290X. You should even be able to pair a R9 380 with a R9 285. 4-way CorssFire with one of each of the cards is even possible! This is not the first time that AMD has allowed cross-generation pairings, the did it with the R9 280 series and the HD 7900 series and the R9 270 series and the HD 7800 series.
