If one is so concerned about power usage and "light" gaming, then simply forgo a card entirely.

Finally a Dual Graphics review using a 6670 and A10-5800K

http://hexus.net/tech/reviews/cpu/46157-amd-a10-5800k-dual-graphics-evaluation/

Most benchmarks indicate it's not that a good choice. Though it wouldn't surprise me to see faster cards enable dual graphics in the drivers in the near future.

Far beyond what you'd expected with this AMD hybrid solution.


^This is basically irrelevant. You are comparing 2 completely different levels of GPU. If you can pair a 955 with a GTX 460,you can pair a 5800K with a GTX 460 for the same price.You are just confusing the issue.

That being said OP,a single GPU is always going to perform better than a dual set-up,at least for the near future. Most people will be either using just the APU,or getting a more powerful single GPU and not hassle with crossfire issues.Would be fun to play with and overclock,but not very practical.

Well a 955 is $25 cheaper last I checked. My point being was trying to trick out a APU solution for gaming is pretty fruitless.

I think you mean trying to trick-out a hybrid crossfire solution? An overclocked 5800K will perform on par with an overclocked Phenom II X4.

It's pretty practical if you're going sff and need a low profile card. The 5800k paired up with a low profile 6670 is about as good as it gets for that setup.
In progress.

I have just finished and used my new setup now for a few days, and it rocks!
Any one saying dual graphics is not viable, Will be surprised!

I know Intel has more raw cpu power, but lets face it, 90% og us are gamers! And for This my new A10-5800k + 6670 gddr5 + 1866 ram + Asus motherboard delivers smile.gif

If you guys want full system specs and a perhaps a few gaming benchmarks, let mé know!
And I am a gamer and bought This system for gaming only and the ocasional blue Ray movie smile.gif

So no gaming performance related requests please, since I dont have the software ( unless its downloadable 100% free ofc )

But for now its back to bf 3 1080p gaming wink.gif

3dmark11 an 3dmark vantage would be a good start.

And web links to those results.

Very happy to hear someone has tried this,

can you download the free Unigine Heaven DX11 Benchmark from here:

http://unigine.com/products/heaven/download/

If you have the time, try to make a nice matrix of tests, i.e.

Stock APU speed + Stock RAM + Stock HD6670
Stock APU speed + Stock RAM + Overclocked HD6670
Stock APU speed + Overclocked RAM + Overclocked HD6670
Overclocked APU speed + Overclocked RAM + Overclocked HD6670

Also can do the whole thing over with different levels of AA and AS.

The hardware will run the APU GPU and the discrete GPU in CrossfireX at the SLOWER of the two GPUs, the trick is to find the maximum (and/or optimum) stable frequency for whichever is the slower GPU in your system.

So after you do the above tests you'll want to adjust the Overclocks to find your 'sweetspot', with or without any intention of posting back on this thread, you want to do this to optimize your hardware for your own enjoyment.

You'll need to run GPUz or something similar http://www.techpowerup.com/gpuz/

And a big list of overclocking utilities you might want to play around with:

If you guys will bear with me, I will be more than willing to do the tests you suggest, but I live in Denmark, and its is 22:13 at night now, so likely I will start tomorrow, and do what I can day for day intill its all done.

But for starters I will list all the hardware components for you guys, so you have an idea of what we are dealing with smile.gif
I will list all the components with name, and a link, incase you want to se the specs.
Its a Danish website though so prices are in danish, but I will inform both the Danish, US Dollar, and EURO pricing for this build. smile.gif

Ohh and bear in mind, this is the prices with danish taxes, and they are rediculous, so I am sure you can know the price by at least a good 20-25% in uk and us smile.gif
