The new A-5800K is really looking nice. But I think I got myself confused about a few things concerning the A-series.

APU Spec
Model
A10-5800K

Radeon Brand
HD7660D

CPU Clock speed
3,8/4,2

Cores
4


1: Can the GPU that is inside the APU be sort of cossfired with another graphic card?

2: If yes. Can it be crossfired with any HD 7000 Series or does it have to be a HD
7660 related graphic card? (Was thinking about using a 7970)

3: How much of a bonus + would be to have an APU combined with a GPU / is it worth it?

4: Properly the most stupid question. I know that Crossfire is most commonly setup by linking two graphic cards together with a crossfire cable. But this APU-GPU combo (If its even possible) makes me wonder if the mother board take care of that.
5: Last but not least. Anyone knows if there will be a motherboard with FM2 socket that is build and meant for gaming and not media center


So far thanks.

1. Yes

2. this A10 can only be crossfired with specific video cards and I don't think the 7970 is one of them.

3. Could't tell ya

4. no cables needed.

PII 1100T (Extinct)
Asus M4A78T-E (should be Extinct)
4Gb of Corsair XMS3 1600Mhz DDR3 (Going strong)
2x1GB 5850's (On their last lags)
Corsair HX850W (Awsome)
NZXT Phantom case (too ***** big)
