Yes but I didn't want to confuse the chap.

Bleh, AMD Crossfire can be insanely confusing, because you can even mix a few generations... I still don't, and never will see a true point in Crossfire or SLI.

True point? Increased performance.

I can see the point of a two card SLI, though it's debatable whether getting a couple of GTX970s, or getting a GTX980Ti is preferable!

Just depends on budget. A single Titan X is roughly the performance of 2 980s, and a single 980ti is roughly the performance of 2 970s. Get two of the high end cards is just icing on the cake.

Not to be rude or anything, PP Mguire, but if it's possible to xfire AMD and Geforce could you perhaps tell me or send me a link so I can learn a bit more about it?

It's not possible to crossfire AMD and Geforce... It's IMPOSSIBLE...

What we are saying is this...

In advanced setups, it's possible to crossfire lets say...
AMD 3870 and AMD 3400
AMD 4200 and AMD 3200 (some boards allowed this)

It's IMPOSSIBLE to crossfire or SLI lets say...
AMD x290 and Nvidia Geforce 980 as they are two entirely different species.


How-ever... In very complicated and tricky setups, a user can do the following...
Use an AMD 290 for graphics, and a Geforce 950 for physics, but these are NOT connected cards, they are operating entirely separate, and on their own.

Or some users just use the Nvidia GPU entirely for it's CUDA processing.

Basically, what your asking, is impossible electrically.

Damn, I shoulda kept quiet.

As corrosive said above.
Another use is to run lots of monitors, by both gpus independently providing images.
