Hey Guys/Girls,
So I have the Asus AMD Radeon HD 6670 and the APU A8 6600K with radeon graphics. Although I now want to know if I can crossfire the two and will it benefit me? I have searched throughout the web and nobody seems to have an answer on this?
All of your answers are greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

Here are my system specs:

'Cross-firing' an AMD Richland APU with a discreet video card is called "Dual-Graphics" --- Your A8-6600K should run in dual-graphics with your discreet Radeon HD 6670 without problems.

Some gaming titles will receive quite a nice boost in FPS and some will receive no boost at all. Some titles may actually run worse in dual-graphics. Therefore, it is important that you benchmark your games, and set appropriate game video subsystem profiles for them in CCC to maximize the gaming performance (HD 8570D-HD 6670 dual graphics or HD 6670 only).

There is also some fine-tuning that will help your gaming performance --- your GPU core clocks should be sync'ed as close as possible, and memory speeds on the HD6670 should be tweaked and tested to determine best output.

Also -- depending upon the revision of your motherboard, faster RAMs (up to DDR3 2400MHz) can significantly improve the graphics performance of the Richland HD 8570D graphics engine.
