    you may be able to connect it, but its not designed for crossfire with a highend GPU. you may actually get worse performance than if you just left the high end GPU alone.

    No, it only works with the HD 76** series in CrossfireX

    I can't find any info on hybrid CrossFire with the new APU's. If it does work, I'm sure it will be like the older APU's that used 6670/6650.

    Looks like you can at least use a 6670.

    HD6670 and HD6570 only.


    A8-5600K with HD6570 only.

    There are also limitations whether you connect the monitor to the discrete VGA, or the motherboard, depending on what combination you use. ;)

    Thank's I stand corrected, I thought it had to be HD 76** series, surely this would have made more sense since the IGP has been updated to 7 series and yielded more benefit, seems as though the IGP on the new A series is little more than the previous version rebadged/tweaked instead of a proper 7 series IGP?

    Similar to 5-series to 6-series change, GCN will be next iteration of APU, I believe.

    Knowledgable guy right here, you have helped me quite a few times over the years, albeit without your knowing as I have only been registered for a short time though read TPU for years, most noticeably overclocking SB with the turbo instead of the multi :toast:
