Frycry5 with 2xHD8970M

Can you play Frycry5 with 2 HD86700m cards??

If not why is it can play assassin's Creed Origans which has the same  minimum spec on full??  I get about 30fps

The game will boot and play foir a some time then the screen will lock up.

I email Uplay about it and they say I need to upgrade my crads..

Are they just passing the buck??

Re: Frycry5 with 2xHD8970M

Something's not making sense. No laptop has dual 8670M cards, and I imagine you do not have dual HD 8970M cards as they were limited to expensive, high end desktop replacement laptops as they are rated for 100w each, so I assume you mean HD 8650G + HD 8670M Dual Graphics. The absolute minimum card is a desktop class R9 270, which is nearly 4 times as powerful as the laptop class 8670M. Also, your processor is no doubt slower than a desktop class FX-6300, so yes, you should not be playing Far Cry 5 on that laptop.

Re: Frycry5 with 2xHD8970M

As you can see form the screen shoot of the AMD system montior I have a Intel Crose 17 48000MQ cpu running at 2.7 (16gig) and 2 AMD radeon HD8970M cards..

Which I got form metabox back in 2014.  I can't link a page to the system as they don't sell it any more, but it was the top of the line in 2014

I know this is under the minimum spec r9 270

But I can run assassin's creed origin at 1920x100 on ultra and still get 30fps (not the best buit still playable for me) and is has the same minimum spec

Now I have got Farcry 5 runing at (1280x8000 on the lowest seting at 60pfs. (still looks great))

But if I chage the size of the screen or up the setting it will lock up after about 30mins or so.

It not over heating as the fps is steady and I don't get any bells to warm of overheading.

So my questrion is why does assassin's creed origin run great and farcry 5 just run, when they have the same minimum spec??

A few more things I notice.

1) Each time I start farcry 5 I get a msgs box asking me to let it change seting on my system

     This is the only game that does this each time.

2) Why is it AMD Radeon Setting flag dead Dishonored 2 and Prey (both wich run at max screen side and setting) will a warning and not farcry 5?? (see pic)

And help as to what going on wound be nice.

Playing to update card by end of year so i can play red dead redemption 2

Re: Frycry5 with 2xHD8970M

Which is the correct response, as your dual graphics setup does not meet the power of a R9 270.
