I'll have to check that out then.
As to Crossfire on FM2, I have tested, and it works OK, but there is a definite performance loss with the APU's lack of L3.
I highly appreciate your article and work you done. But your words "NO mention of Crossfire on the box, no Crossfire logo." makes me wondering about myself and what kind of people wrote those articles these days
But hey I'm not bossy know it all person (BKIAP) and i undestand that humanum est errare
and that we all lack of time. And its great to admit that ... just dude don't do that in such fashion
Yep this board itself supports Crossfire because every MR.APU from AMD (Llano, Trinity ...) allows that their PCIE x16 2.0 links could be split into two PCIE x8 2.0 links
. It's inside APU chip guys not inside chipset. Thou chipset must be compatible to know to use that feature.
And i personally dislike this "Performance Loss because lacking of L3 cache" conclusions. If you know BD architecture you know that its cache is already a weak spot so aKsk to additionally burden this small chip with under performing L3 cache in conclusion it would benefit GPUs performance is just silly. Only thing GPU could benefit is some "SidePort link" incarnation as 64b GDDR5 IMC along with 1GB GDDR5 on APU SoC design. But we cant expect that for measly 120USD. Yet (maybe in 2014)
