Anyone else playing games out there with their nMP? I thought I read where crossfire wouldn't be enabled in Windows. I'm running 8.1 pro and it says AMD CrossFireX is enabled. Any thoughts/experiences with games?
xFire is enabled under windows and it flies!

I think you should be getting better performance than that in Crysis. What drivers are you using? If you're using the stock Apple-provided Boot Camp drivers, download the latest Catalyst drivers directly from AMD.
Based on the frame rates the OP reported, I was going to suggest that maybe Crossfire wasn't working. Newer drivers can and do include updated Crossfire profiles -- I know for a fact that Crossfire was working with my D700s when playing Crysis 3. I can't remember the exact settings I was using, but I know I was getting a solid 60fps at 1080p which seems to be higher than the OP.Is it also possible CrossFire just isn't working? I know for some games support can be wonky.
Relly wish Apple would offer Crossfire on Macs. That, 10bit color and continuing OpenGL improvements are my big three wishes for them on the graphics side of things.
Did I say that? Guess I did.
Try adding on an Herman Miller Embody chair, monitor swing mounts, and a height adjustable desk.
6 core, 64gb, d700, 1tb. Running TitanFall maxed 2560x1440 resolution. (27" Thunderbolt display) Running this on a 256gb Win 8.1 PRO partition with bootcamp. Not a VM.
Can Crossfire be enabled in a VM? Does it work? I am curious since you specified 'Not a VM', and I know nothing of the technology.
Believe it or not but VM has been around a long while. I ran Virtual PC 2004 on a transcend usb drive way back when.
You're always tied to the frame/shell of the VM. So things are limited by software restraints. Whereas bootcamp it's not. For gaming bootcamp is recommended but requires a little more know how. Plenty of good material on here to look around.
