A10-6700 crossfire compatable?
I recently got a new gaming pc with a a10-6700 cpu in it, as I plan to upgrade it i would like to know is it crossfire compatible? ex: Radeon hd 7770 with the intergrated Radeon HD 8670d? will they work together or will the intergrated shut off and let dedicated gpu take over? I plan to upgrade in march, april-ish, also if it can what card do you reccomend to crossfire it with around the 120$-150$ range? thanks in advance.
The Graphics card will take over and the CPU graphics will be pretty much obsolete. You cannot X-Fire cards with random cards. For the most part you will want to X-Fire the said card with itself, in other words, buy two 7770's and X-Fire them, that will be easiest and give you the best performance.
sporemasterjw said:so what would be better, a dedicated 7770 or a onboard 8760D, if it is the onboard is there anyway i can dedicate more ram to it, it barley has .75 of a gig
The 7770 will be way better. in performance. Don't forget to select Best Solution so people with similar questions can get help from this!
The dedicated, by a slim margin, and most of that will be down to the shared memory nature of your 8760. It's not really worth buying if you are, but if you aren't then 756MB is fine.
GPU memory needs are largely down to their number crunching ability. Just giving them more doesn't usually increase performance much, other than allowing you to load larger textures.
