[Parts Check] XFire Question

I've been thinking about the other thread about video card prices and I want two know if these two cards can run in Crossfire?

XFX HD 6870 which is now deactivated.

And this XFX HD 6870?

Their stats are identical so can I Xfire these?

Can't imagine why you wouldn't be able to.

Don't see why not, Crossfire will even let you xfire two different GPUs together (eg a 7870 and a 7850):

I was looking all over for a graph like that. Thanks, Kris. I see this isn't quite like it used to be where you had to use two perfectly matched cards. Now all I need is for the price to come down. On newegg the 6870 are still the same price that I paid a year and half ago like we were discussing in your thread.

I believe nowadays you can use two cards with different clock speeds and amounts of memory--however, they revert to the lowest common denominator when crossfired or in SLI.
