AMD A-10 7870K & Dual Graphics

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Heya,

i have some questions about dual graphics - as far as i know, the best discrete graphics card to use with the A-10 7870K in dual graphics is the R7 250. I am building a APU mini ITX system with a A-10 7870K, and the Case i have chosen (Chieftec UNI BT-02B-U3) has a PCI single slot, and i dont know what to put in there (apart from the option to leave it empty.). So, there are some versions of single slot R7 250 GPUs, and i can choose from 3 different RAM types: DDR3, GDDR3 & GDDR5. What would be the best option? I don't know much about dual graphics, but i think GDDR3 is the better choice here, because GDDR5 have to 'slow down' itself to match the 7870K's GPU Speed (correct me if I'm wrong). Can anyone recommend me a Single Slot GPU?

The thing is, christmas is coming I have no idea what to wish for tongue.gif. Dual Draphics is a very interesting thing.

One of the cards i have hound is the XFX Core Edition Radeon R7 250 with 2 GB DDR3 RAM. But every website says different things about the Memory Clock speed. One says 800MHz, the german site says "1000MHz (2000MHz GDDR3)", Whatever they mean with that and Newegg says 1000MHz.

Or better buy a GDDR5 GPU are there any advantages over 1GB GDDR5 against 2GB DDR3? There is also the Sapphire R7 250 Low Profile with 1GB of GDDR5 RAM.

EDIT: Oh, Thats not a Oland-XT-Card i see. Not so good. Or thats doesn't matter?

More EDIT: okay, this Card isn't supported. Now im looking for an other Single Slot card. Meh.

I've used the following card in a dual graphics build and would recommend it for what you are looking for, but don't believe you'll be able to find it available any where.

Meh, the availability does not look so good. "Usually Available within 3 - 5 weeks."
There's also the Asus Radeon R7 250 with 1GB of DDR5, but i think the cooler is to big and won't fit.
