- Borderlands 2 - New CrossFire profile
- Guild War 2: Resolves grass texture corruption observed when changing graphics settings in a CrossFire configuration
- World of Warcraft(DX9): Fix the flickering observed when view distance is changed to fair in graphics settings when CrossFire is enabled
- Depth Hunter: Resolves shadow flickering seen when running in CrossFire mode
- Dirt Showdown - Resolves flickering seen in CrossFire mode
- Stalker Call of Pripyat - Resolves flickering seen in CrossFire mode
- War of Roses - Fixes flickering seen in CrossFire mode

Ive been using dual amd cards for years, and I still have no idea if the profiles are active or not. Am I suppose to activate the profile before I start every game? :confused:

If I have done somthing right, I still never notice the difference.

IIRC, You install the CAPs and they watch for the exe for the game, then configure as needed.

In short, you just install them and it works.

Yes, install it. The CAP profiles can work for both single cards and multiple cards.

6990 is a dual GPU card, but it uses an internal Crossfire link. It's still Crossfire.
