Was introduced in 13.8 beta 2 iirc. "Enabling CrossFire can result in the PCI-e bus speed for the secondary GPU being reported as x1".

Makes a bit more sense if the fix was just cosmetic.

Yeah LOL that's a serious performance hit! I wonder how long that bug was around. Need new xfire benchmarks!
Perpetual debt is slavery.

Err...so does this mean that this WHOLE time, all second (and third, fourth, etc.) cards that were in x16 or x8 slots were really just running at x1?! WTF, AMD?!?
