What happens if we combine the Radeon RX 5600 XT and RX 5700 XT in a bundle? Is CrossFire alive in 2020?

At one time, both AMD and Nvidia actively promoted technologies that allowed connecting two or more video cards in a bunch to increase productivity. However, for several years both companies have actually forgotten about these technologies, saying that in modern realities this is irrelevant, and from the point of view of optimizing games by developers, everything was far from ideal, and it remained.
However, CrossFire and SLI still exist. And the source enthusiasts decided to check how well one of these technologies works in 2020. For testing, they took the Radeon RX 5600 XT and RX 5700 XT. Recall that modern AMD adapters can be connected in bundles, even if they are from different lines. The results of the experiment can be seen below in the form of diagrams. 1 2
Yes, there are only two games, since the rest, according to the source, either did not support such GPU configurations at all, or worked incorrectly.
As for the available two games, as you can see, the increase was about 65%, and in both games it was almost the same. This is very good, but, considering that in many other games the source’s specialists encountered problems, it turns out that for most users using such bundles today really does not make any sense.
