Onboard and Discrete Graphics (Onboard on APU and Mobo) Help! Tags: Graphics AMD BIOS Build Font Last response: October 1, 2013 7:14 PM in Graphics & Displays Share evamvid September 30, 2013 6:22:09 AM Hey Everybody, For a possible upcoming build, I'm looking at maybe using an AMD A10-6800K APU and a Gigabyte GA-F2A85X-D3H Mobo. These both have onboard graphics. I heard somewhere online that it is just a UEFI/BIOS setting to tell which on gets used. Can anybody verify that? And, if sometime in the future, I can upgrade to discrete graphics, I would just choose those in the BIOS, right? Also, is it possible to run them simultaneously for better performance and/or more monitors? Thanks! evamvid More about : onboard discrete graphics onboard apu mobo corvetteguy1994 September 30, 2013 6:46:29 AM yes you can buy a discrete card and crossfire it with the cpu but you need to look up what card you can use. i think its a 6770 you can use or if you have a good cooler you can overclock the on bored and get better performance that way. evamvid October 1, 2013 6:42:48 PM So I can actually CrossFire the CPU and a discrete GPU?
