And another thought, why the hell are the FirePro APUs currently OEM only?

Also the APU Dual Graphics configurations need to be added to the Crossfire Compatibility Chart.

The whole forum is going to be littered with Windows 8 and APU posts. Both need their own catagory.

I'll second that ! ... and further, why are they desktop only ?!

Slap a FirePro APU in a tablet with a stylus and it would be a game changer ! Most professional applications don't require a ton of CPU power if theyhave hardware graphics acceleration (Solidworks for example).

Amen

APU's for sure.

Windows 8 systems - yep.

CrossFireX - why not. 

Left Handed Bagpipe Repair Persons Section - well now we are getting carried away. 

Having an A-10 rig currently running in dual-graphics, under Windows 8 Pro I could not agree more with the OP.  I'm going to be adding another HD 6670 so a CrossFireX section is going to be a good idea too.  

On the other hand I' m not sure if I should take offence to the "littered" comment.
