Long story short, I shipped my rig to Japan for a deployment a year ago, packed it up wrong and the 280x ending up bending after the package was dropped. The card lasted about a month, then massive artifacts so I replaced the card with a 390. I saved the 280x just in case I found a way to fix, which I did. Stuck it in the oven at 385 degrees for 10 mins, card works again.

My question, being I now have a second card, can I Xfire the 280x and 390? I know older generations of Xfire would cause both cards to operate at the lower cards' specs, but have heard that has changed and each will operate normally. Is this so?
