I uninstalled my 280 in anticipation of crossfire linking the newer 280x with it. I physically installed both cards, crosslinked with the adaptor to the goldfinger parts on the cards. turned on computer. updated graphics to newest radeon software for r9 200 series. my computer in device manager only says there is one display adapters - amd radeon r9 200 series. also I don't see anywhere listed in the amd software that there are two cards Im using or anything in particular about crossfire. how do I check if everything is applied correctly?
