    Does it freeze up and need to restart or does it stutter? If just stuttering, turn off hardware acceleration in Chrome settings, if fully stopping try to reinstall drivers

    You might have to flash a different bios.

    Yes, I was thinking about that but since it was a test card (can not damage the card) I had to return it and I did not have knowledge either to flash the bios. So I had to return the card and ask for my money back

    Crossfire connector isn't needed for crossfire for them, but they do seem to be the more stable ones

    Do you have any recommendations for vBIOS? I also have been struggling with my Alienware m17 R2 trying to get this M6100 running stable. It works perfectly fine if i run fur mark to stress test and most games run good, however, Halo 2 Vista, random websites and youtube completely lock up the computer and it has to be hard powered off.

    I don’t think it’s a vbios issue. It’s driver issues.

    When I had the cards installed in my m18x r2 in windows 10, I let windows auto install the drivers and it worked without any issue.

    On another hand, if I choose the AMD drivers to install on my own, the cards would lock up or freezes the laptop and I have to force shutdown. No matter what drivers I choose to manually install, it had that same issue.

    In my opinion , for AMD cards, I let windows auto install as it knows what drivers is very compatible with the cards.
