Hi!

I have recommended a friend of mine to aquire an A8 3870k processor.

So far I am very impressed about it's performance.

I wanted to know if I should config in the bios setup the amount of shared memory with the GPU or if this is handled automatically.

I could not find any feature to do this in the bios yet.

Any other recommendations about configuration to drain the maximun processor performance are also welcome.

thanks in advance!

Polaco.

The 3870K is a beast, rivaling Phenom II core-for-core. There should be no need to force a non-stock configuration in the BIOS.

It has been said that the CPU portion can, at times, hold back the IGP so the only thing I could recommend would be a small overclock w/ a minor voltage bump.

What do you mean by "drain the maximum processor performance"?
