Piledriver Hybrid Crossfire & WoW

Anyone have any idea if an AMD Piledriver build running hybrid crossfire will be able to max WoW at 1080P? Specifically thinking about the A10-5800K & Radeon 6670 set up. I would get the Asus 1 GB GDDR5 card. Also am thinking about the AMD DDR3 1600 16 GB kit.

Been looking for benchmarks with the hybrid crossfire set up, but have found very little in the way of performance info.

    Do you have the A10-5800k now and looking to add the 6670? Microstutter is a real issue with crossfire, and these hybrid crossfire setups appear to be worse based on how many times I have seen people complain about it.

    WoW traditionally has been a CPU bottlenecked game. That means the A10-5800k's CPU capabilities may also be holding you back from the FPS you want.

    If you do have the A10-5800k now, how is performance with everything set to low? If you still have poor performance, another GPU will not help.

    No, I am planning a new build. My primary use will be to play WoW and maybe other MMOs. Any other gaming I will do on my XBox. I used to play WoW on an Asus G72-GX with a C2D and GeForce 260M. I was able to play on high/ultra at over 40FPS, but not at 2080P. My goal is to play WoW on ultra at 1080P. I want a quad core and Intel/NVidea isn't exactly in my budget. I think the be Bulldozer and Piled river build look promising and deliver the bang for buck value I am looking for.
  3. Well...guess I was wrong..micro stutter is a problem while running WoW in crossfire..so I guess I am gonna try something else....thx
  4. Took my chances and did this build anyway. The Piledriver system with the A10-5800K and Radon 6670 plays WoW flawlessly at 1080P with hybrid crossfire. I want with 8GB DDR3 1866 and ssd as well.
