Can you shut off one core on a dual core gpu? The reason I ask is some games will not run with a dual GPU setup whether or not they are on the same card or two cards. This goes both for SLI and Crossfire.

i found this...http://www.overclock.net/amd-ati/1008030-5970-getting-crazy-when-disabling-one.html

some say that you cannot disable the second core on any dual core gpu..regardless if its AMD or Nvidia.

what card do you have that you would want to disable one of the cores?

I was thinking of buying a 6990 to replace my old 5830s.
