AMD Llano APU's! - Page 4

If you are a hardcore gamer it might be better to go for a higher end GPU and just an Athlon x4. For me, the APU is perfect, and When Trinity comes out I am most likely going to jump onto that as well. APUs 4 life.

Thanks for the help. smile.gif

EDIT:

!!!
I never knew Llano was 32nm... NICE. There are Llano Athlon ii x4s... O.o

Yep. the AMD Athlon II X4 631. it's a 2.6GHZ Llano Quad core for under $85. for socket FM1. it has NO intergrated gpu on it.

I like the one with iGPU, because say i did have a video card, and it somehow died, it would be nice to have the back up graphics to play games thumb.gif

I am (hopefully) about to build 3 Llano rigs, all super cheap. 2 for friends who want very low budget gaming rigs and one for me as a project.
I have a question about APUs. The three rigs I'm building will all have a8 3870k CPUs, with a discrete 6670 card each, for hybrid crossfire. Will hybrid crossfire work for more than 1 discrete card? That is, can hybrid crossfire be done with 2 6670s and an a8 3870k? Or can it only be done with 1 6670 and a 3870k.

As far as I know you can have two discrete cards, work as Dual Graphics. Notice how I used the term Dual Graphics because Crossfire is different, Crossfire is taking one GPU's power and combining with another while Dual Graphics is two GPU's working together independently. So it's either you add 1 video card to work with the APU in Dual Graphics mode, or 2 video cards on Dual Graphics. Take note you have to be careful what motherboard you purchase, some are really annoying to work with in terms of Dual Graphics support, some are really sketchy as to whether its pairing the APU + GPU or GPU + GPU. Always double check Dual Graphics support capability.

Also on a sidenote, APU alone doing all the work kind of lowers the processing power but when paired with a graphics card, the processing power increases dramatically. APU's are amazing to the fact that it really runs very cool even on stock! Max temp I've had and now I am on 3.0ghz stable just via K10stat overclocks, is 30C under heavy load. Imagine a measly A-4 3300 2.5ghz now upto 3.0ghz for a price dirt cheap it's a great deal!

Yeah that's what i had heard. I read some places though that this BIOS was locked at 1333mhz so i figured just grab another stick and call it good.

Good idea... RAM isnt to expensive, and because Llano is an APU, it eats up some of your ram

hybrid crossfire only works with one gfx card in primary slot...

im building a a8-3850 rig to play games on as i wanna use the one i have for other purpose,, only thin i need to source is a ssd to get it up and runing and next month im throing in a 6670. build log is comming act i have one started but havent posted it yet cause, i been busy at work. i hope to fin my psu this weekend...

keep in mind the amd dual gfx option via hybrid crossfire, only works with one of 3 series of cards 6450, 6570 & 6670... the amount of ram i have in this well, lets just say its 3/4 of it was free from intel last module i got off newegg
