HD6570 + A8 5600k or A10 5800k?

I have the Asus HD6570 1GB DDR3. AMD reccomends to pair this gfx card with the A8 rather than the A10. In your opinion which of the two is the best match for the 6570? if I go for the A10 will the dual graphics perform better than with the A8? Or is it optimized for the A8?
thanks

  1. After experimenting with an A10-5800K and an HD 6670, I decided that the micro stutter caused by the 2nd card in dual graphic mode wasn't worth it. I had nearly as good FPS with just the HD 6670, and no stutter. To answer your question, here is the AMD recommended combos:

    Yes. Remember, the GPU has to match the on-die GPU or they won't dual graphic.

    Unless you just want to experiment with dual graphics, I would recommend spending your money on a discrete graphic card if you want to improve the FPS of the on-die alone.
  4. Ok, thanks for the heads up!
  5. I don't notice the micro stuttering you guys are talking about with my A8-5600k with 6670 combo, but I did hook up my HDMI to the 6670 rather than the motherboard. AMD says to hook up the display to the faster card, whether that's the IGP or dedicated card.

    On my retail box, it says both the A8 and A10 can go in dual graphics mode with the 6570 and 6670. The A6 can DG with the 6450(?) and 6570. Obviously, the APUs will have their optimized DG cards.
