Goody day Forum readers! I just wanted to ask if Amd's dual graphics support is only for those who want multi display... and also I wanted to ask if it is possible to use dual graphics with amd-a10-5800k Hd 7660d with Geforce gt630?

Best solution

Firstly dual graphics is not only for multi display it supports it. Secondly you cannot crossfire two AMD cards that are of different models. Also you cannot SLI two difference NVIDIA cards of different models.

SLI = Installing two NVIDIA graphics cards in one system
crossfire = Installing two AMD graphics cards in one system

For example I had one NVIDIA gtx 560 which I used for two monitors (not used for gaming but office uses)

The OP means dual graphics as in using the 7660D with an AMD graphics card such as the 6670.

First of all this feature of the APU works with limited graphics cards and the best one you can do it with is an AMD 6670. You cannot use the 7660D with a GT 630(in dual graphics mode) but you CAN use the 7660D and a 6670. You don't need more than one graphics card to run dual displays but I'm no expert on how powerful a GPU needs to be before it can run dual displays.

So you can't crossfire the Apu of the a10-5800k which is the radeon hd7660d with Gt630?
