XFX R7-250E Crossfire with A10-7850k?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I built an A10-7850k system a couple months ago and I'm considering crossfiring it with a graphics card to give it a bit more power. Originally I wanted to crossfire it with the XFX 7750 HD but support for that never arrived, only the R7-240 and R7-250. I noticed they rebranded their Ghost version of the 7750 HD to the R7-250E. Not sure what the E is for, though this one should be more powerful than the basic R7-250. Would like to know if this will work with the 7850k, since I rather have this than the Sapphire one I was going to get before.

Link to the graphics card in question.

I think you are better with a hd 7870 ghz/r9 270(x) would give better performance than the hybrid crossfirex

If I were going for an R9 270x I wouldn't have built an A10-7850k system, Would have gotten an AMD FX 8320 or Intel Core i5 Ivy Bridge had I intended to do that. Not needing too much performance for this system. I still want to know if I can Crossfire it.

Yes you can but the performance is weak...btw your a10 7850 can handle a 7870/r9 270

Yes, but I'm not willing to spend ~$200 on a graphics card and my case will only support a single slot card.

Ok, I feel like I'm being trolled now. I physically can't use the card, I said that. And I can't post in the marketplace because I don't have the rep to do it, otherwise I'd try and sell the extra power supply that I UV sleeved.

hmm well, I can't find any info on people putting the 250e or 250x into dual graphics mode just the 250. Having said that, the 250 has 384 shaders, the 250x has 640, and the 250e has 512... this is important because that is exactly how many are in the a10-7850s igp.

Due to that, I would think that the 250e would be capable of dual graphics mode with the 7850... but I have no way of knowing for sure.
Sorry AMD

Thank you. I know the 250X has been confirmed not working. The 250E is basically the 7750 HD which is what the GPU is inside the 7850k like you said. You think it would work. So far only Oland based GPUs work with the Kaveri APUs but I was curious about the 250E as it is being advertised as a 250, even though it is Cape Verde based.
