A10-5800K suitable for crossfire?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm very tempted to but an R7-260X and crossfire it with my current HD7790 and I was wondering if my APU could handle the load.

I've never had the chance to use crossfire before so I'm not entirely sure what to expect, I'm using an AMD A10-5800K 4.4GHz @ 1.3V (I'm trying to push it higher but I'm having some difficulty).

Would my APU keep up? I'd assume that crossfire bottlenecks rely mostly on how fast the processor can shift the data to the cards, but I could be wrong.

IIRC the 260x is a 7870, not a 7790. Not sure at all if it would work.

270X is the 7870

and @OP at certain points in games where heavy MSAA/ rendering points will be ... there will be a choke/ fps drop with crossfire with the APU

It's the 7790, I'm using the 260X BIOS on my 7790 at the moment.

I don't plan on using AA until I upgrade my CPU, thinking about an FX series, or whatever AMD has hidden away for the future.
