If you are a gamer you probably want to get maximum performance out of your hardware. This is why many AMD users are using Crossfire technology to get most out of their graphic cards, but sadly, there are reports that Crossfire isn’t working with Windows 10.Crossfire Doesn't Work in Windows 10

What to do if  AMD Crossfire Doesn’t Work in Windows 10

Crossfire technology was developed by AMD back in 2005 and it is used to combine two AMD graphic cards to get better performance. This idea sounds great on paper, and many gamers are using this technology to get the maximum performance while gaming. According to reports second GPU isn’t detected on Windows 10, and there’s no support for Crossfire on Windows 10, although it works perfectly on previous versions of Windows. So what can we do to fix this?

Solution 1 – Update your display drivers

Firstly we’ll uninstall your display driver using the Display Driver Uninstaller. You can download DDU from here.

  1. Run Display Driver Uninstaller to remove your current display driver.
  2. After the drivers have been removed go to AMD’s website and download latest drivers and install them. We also recommend this third-party tool (100% safe and tested by us) to automatically download all the outdated drivers on your PC.

This should fix issues with your AMD cards, but some users claim that older drivers work better. For example, many uses claim that Crossfire works in version 15.7 of Catalyst drivers, while newer drivers have Crossfire option disabled for some strange reason. Therefore, when downloading drivers you might want to try older version of drivers, such as 15.7.

Solution 2 – Unplug your second monitor

If you’re using two monitors, you might want to unplug second monitor before installing AMD Catalyst drivers. After you have installed the drivers, you can enable Crossfire and then plug in your second monitor. This is a simple workaround, but for some reason Crossfire won’t stay enabled in Catalyst Control Center when the second monitor is plugged in. As you can see, this isn’t the best solution, but it’s a simple workaround that might work for you.
