    keeping this post short and sweet.

    disabled crossfire in catalyst; tested bf3; maxed settings but with anti-aliasing off.
    fps hovered between 70 to 90 (with just ONE 6870).

    I was surprised. Why is it so high with a 6870?!

    re-activiated crossfire; frames are the exact same. i see zero improvement.
    is this normal? or is there something actually wrong?

    Did you remember to install the cross fire profiles?

    Seems more like CrossFire performance to me. Check your GPU usage in GPU-Z or Afterburner.

    does it only take one download of the CAP files from AMD drivers?

    after i disable crossfire in catalyst, bf3 runs at 70 to 90 with just one card. gpu usage, according to gpu-z is at least 90%. there is no gpu usage on the second card (whether crossfire is activated or not in catalyst).

    at least i don't notice it. there may be a random jump of gpu usage on the second card but then goes back to zero within half a second.
