How to setup AMD Dual Graphics with A8 3870k APU & Gigabyte 6670 GPU

IMAG0600 Hi all and welcome to the second video in our AMD APU build series and here we show you how to run dual graphics with an APU build. There are four dedicated GPU’s you can use to run Dual graphics on an APU- AMD 6450, 6570 & 6670. Those are the only card you can use to run crossfire with the AMD A8 APU.

The Graphics card used here is a Gigabyte HD6670 card with 1GB of DDR3 memory. It is also very important to have a solid PSU that is capable of handling you dedicated card and components in you rig. I am using the Antec HCG-620, which is a great PSU to use with an AMD APU.  One major step you need to carry out in-order to get dual graphics to work with you APU and dedicated GPU. You need to change a setting in your bio which you can see in the video. Without this change you will not be able to initial dual graphics with your APU

Setting to change

Init display first( change from peg to Onboard)

    does this get about the same performance as crosfire? (dad’s thinking of getting a pc with the a8 and amd radeon hd 7670)
