I am buying a pc with an AMD A10 7850k as my budget is limited and I need to know which R7 Series cards are officially compatible for Dual Graphics with this APU so that I don't get the wrong one.

Please if someone of AMD could anwer this simple question we all would really apreciate it...

I 've been wondering the same question during weeks ...didnt found any clear answer at all... only official reply to this is seems only r7 240 and r7 250 can do dual graphics but a more clear answer that could assure that AMD is working in applying dual graphics mode in Kaveri 7850k with 260x or 270x would be good to know. Thanks .

I can confirm that a r7 250 will work in crossfire / dual graphics.

My system:

Asus A88XM-Plus 

A10-7850K 

Sapphire R7 250 2 gb DDR3 

GSkill TridentX F3-2400C10D8GTX kit 

Intel Solid-State Drive 530 Series - 120 Gb

Sound Blaster Z

Win7 x64, all drivers up2date

Corsair Hydro H75 

Aerocool DS case


Tests run @ 1920x1080, dual graphics mode

3dMark: 
Firestrike 2413
Cloudgate 9595
Icestorm 1.2 80186
Cinebench R15 45.23

Formula 1 2013
Minimum fps="37.658691" average fps="50.376213

Oh, yes, fast RAM is v e r y important, I got a 15-20% increase when switching from 1600 to 2400 RAM.

 Would be nice if dual graphics could support  260x or 270X too. Would really turn APU A10 7850k into a very capable crossfire gaming rig. 

Also I wonder if possible to combine with powerful GPU like for example buying a high end GPU like R9 290 for example is possible to take advantage of the integrated GPU of the Kaveri 7850K to improve even more the performance.

260x will not dual graphics.  Someone needs to try dual graphics with the 250x or 260 (non-x)

Yes the performance of the new 250X is really impressive for the price.
