Hmm...hybrid cross-firing means having the 6550D Radeon chip (on the A8 Llano) cross-fired with a 6670. So this means a low end card cross-fired with another low end card. You will very likely end up with a great deal of micro-stuttering in games if you crossfire (or SLI for nvidia) 2 low end cards. My advice, don't do it. Get 1 decent video card instead of 2 low end cards.
Its ok , there not low end , there not extreme .. just good enought to run new games.
I actually put the specs into sites to see if i can run it , and i can run crysis 2 , bf3 etc on high .
So im good with that .
Actually it won't run games on high. Not BF3 and Crysis 2.
I agree. I know Phenom II's aren't made anymore but if you can find one it will perform better than both the 4100 and the APU. Pair the PhenomII with a good graphics card and it will play pretty much all games at high resolutions.
BF3 is very CPU intensive (Multiplayer atleast, which is what 80% of us play) and a phenom + 6670 would yield 40ish on MEDIUM. i have a 460 and i get 40ish on HIGH. the APU with hyb.Xfire would get 30 on low. if that.. but toally different story on campaign. Choice is yours, mate. good luck.
