I know it's not supported yet, and I know those that force SLI or Crossfire as well know it's not supported yet.
Maybe I'm not alone with the glitches. First off, You might be better turning it off, I'm sure not everyone is the same.

With my experience using Crossfire, I get rapid flickering with lit objects, it can be the ground or the sky, and even in player/npc names. I even notice screen tearing quite often during game play(probably due to no V-Sync). However, after turning off Crossfire and running off 1 card, the flickering goes away, tearing stops, and my FPS average is even improved by 10-15 points.

If it merits anything, I run:
2 XFX Radeon HD 5770s CrossFired
QX9650 3.0GHz
6Gigz DDR3 Corsair XMS3
and FFXIV on a Samsung 120GB SSD
Everything stock clocks.
Crossfire Active 28-35FPS
Crossfire Inactive 35-50FPS

So ya, if anyone is having similar issues, that could be your problem.

Yeah I noticed the flickering around some light sources when i logged while in Surround mode, but I didn't have any super changes with fps going from non sli to tri though i did have a few spot of minor hiccuping when it came to a ton of spell effects active, but that is a bit to be expected while running surround without proper support. Didn't notice any screen tearing but I have barely played this week. Been having some issues with my pc when it comes to cooling.

So since there is no real improvement, would probably be better off running off one card until it's implemented, and reduce any unnecessary wear on the other cards.

There is improvement, but it involves using your second card to boost your AA settings(at least for SLI, can't speak on CF) instead of using the default SLI settings. Not sure how familiar people are with setting up profiles through the nVidia control panel, but if anyone would like instructions on how to do it just send a PM.
