I have Crossfire enabled running an A8 3850 along with a 6570. All BIOS setting correct, the video in the processor alone actually scores better than when working along with the card in crossfire. I actually lose 3 tenths a point in my Windows Experience Score.

Also I read somewhere, with Crossfire enabled, my video should show up as "HD 6630D2". This doesn't happen. I still just show 2 separate video devices.

Any ideas? Would love to see improved performance with Crossfire, not dropping WEI scores! Any help would be great.

WEI scores mean nothing. There is no rhyme or reason to how they score components. If you want to test for performance get a real 3D bechmark program (3DMark - 06, Vantage, 11) and test with them with/without CrossFire enabled to see if you note any improvements.

As far as the :HD 6630D2" statement is concerned, where are you expecting to see this value at?

I'm guessing you guys connected the display to onboard? What I've read somewhere the display should be connected to the card instead. I tried connecting to display and then to card and I found game running much smoother through the card. But from card, the Engine control centre won't detect crossfire like from onboard and there's no way to know if its already crossfired. I tried reinstalling drivers but same. Any guys from AMD can give a proper dual graphic setup procedure? The HD6690D2 are widely circulated in the internet, as users I guess we expected the system to acknowlegde this. I think AMD should give a proper setup procedure for this Llano dual graphic.

I'm setting up an A6 processor with a Radeon 6750 GPU soon on crossfire, so this is also relevant to me. Are there any guides/FAQs/troubleshooters you could point us to? Also I'd like to ask if the 6750 is fully compatible with these new APUs as AMD keeps saying that performance can be improved upto 120% when used with selected 6000 series radeon cards, but there's no specificity! Thanks in advance
