How to use AMD A8 6600K APU's Graphics
How do I use my APU's graphics processor
A APU is a 'low power, low end, low cost' solution to allow you to just 'turn on the computer' and use it, nothing more. The 'GPU' is built right into the APU, but it is only meant to 'display' not for 'rendering' (aka games, AutoCAD, etc.). All you need to do is plug in the video cable to the case and your done.
Sheko Crack said:Sir this means you have IQ brain. who said apu are that low? i have a10 and iam playing battlefield 4 on high and watchdogs on medium. go study your informations again
Well let's see.. to start with " Thus, the A10-5750M performs at the level of a Core i3-2330M (Sandy Bridge)" http://www.notebookcheck.net/AMD-A-Series-A10-5750M-Notebook-Processor.92882.0.html but to be specific to the OP "the CPU performance of the A8-6600K is on a similar level as the old A10-5800K and therefore on average compareable to a Ivy Bridge Core i3 CPUs." http://www.notebookcheck.net/AMD-A-Series-A8-6600K-Desktop-Processor.96696.0.html
Then maybe .. FORBES? http://www.forbes.com/sites/jasonevangelho/2013/08/21/the-verdict-on-amds-a8-6600k-and-surprising-revelations-testing-an-a10-6800k-with-dual-graphics/ " provided you’re willing to make significant compromises like dropping down to 720p and reducing overall quality" - Oh and what is this? A chart, and OHHH Sleeping Dogs on here, and when on Medium settings 1600-900 we average in the 30s! Standard GAMING PERFORMANCE (not that 'yes it runs' but actually AS ADVERTISED) is 1080P, 50FPS or more, HIGH settings+.
Then there is this.. http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/cpus/2014/01/30/amd-a10-7850k-and-a10-7700k-kaveri-review/7 which shows (just on the IGP) what you get with the CPU, which is crappy low performance (to be expected) that you would have to spend a LARGE sum of money (R9 290X $500 + !!! http://pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-video-card-r9290xedfd) to drive up the performance (http://www.hardcoreware.net/battlefield-4-mantle-kaveri-performance/) but still the R9 twiddles its thumb waiting on the APU because of it's "low demand, low power, low cost" design.
So while your worldly educated random post seems to be in error, I would say maybe YOU should study the information and not watch a bunch of faked YouTube Videos as 'evidence'. For anyone thinking YouTube videos don't lie.. watch https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQSpnDG3YsFNf5-qHocF-WQ thank you.. and remember it is Up Up Down Down Left right Left Right 1 2 for your free cable TV code!!!
