I've never had a problem with ATITool. I haven't used Rivatuner much so I can't comment on it.

I picked up 600 marks with crossfire enabled, didnt do jack for games.

8.3's better be a big improvement or they are going to have a lot of upset people, same thing still happens with these, enable cf and both cards work at 60% avg. One card, thing peaks and stays there. Pretty lame. Crossfire on my old X1950's works better than this, didnt yeild the same score obviously but at least I felt like it was worth having 2 cards. Here I really cant tell if I've forgotten to check the crossfire tick or not.
