Setup Dual Graphics on A10-5770 with Radeon HD 7770 graphics card?

I have an AMD Trinity Quad-Core A10-5700 (with Radeon HD7660D integrated graphics card) and I installed a Radeon HD 7770 graphics card. I am unable to see the Crossfire option in the AMD VISION Engine Control Center. I tried to go into the BIOS and set the INIT Display to Onboard, but I am not able to find that option in my BIOS. My BIOS is AMI version 7.04. Is there another way to change this INIT Display option, or a different way to activate the dual graphics option?

AMD has dual graphics, which utilizes the integrated graphics card and a discrete graphics card together. It's not the actual Crossfire using two graphics cards. The AMD VISION Engine Control Center just shows are Crossfire option when the dual graphics is setup correctly. Then I am able to click a button to activate the dual graphics.

I appreciate the help. Thanks!

the highest level video card you can set up hybrid-crossfire with an A10 chip is the radeon HD 6670

higher end trinity's are able to be crossfired with the 7670 and downwards. I'm sure you can crossfire it with a 6670, as the 7670 will be an updated 6670.

So the A10 won't do the dual graphics with one discrete graphics card and the integrated graphics card? My only option would be to buy a second graphics card? I appreciate the help.

Yes but you'll probably get >= performance out of one 7770 than out of 6670 + igp

Of course, but that defeats the whole purpose of buying an apu...+ it would be a lot cheaper just to throw in a 6670 and xfire them.
