I have an a10-7850K and want to enable dual graphics with asus radeon r7 250 gddr5.

But after I install the card to the mainboard ( asus a88xm-plus ) I can't find the dual graphics option in AMD catalyst control center.

Can anyone help me solve this problem.

Sorry for my poor english.

I am not 100% sure, but I think you can only use GPUs with DDR3 for Dual Graphics

kira,

  You may need to enable the option in the BIOS.  On my setup that closely mirrors what you're attempting to do, the MSI A88XM GAMING board required me to set the primary display adapter as well as enable the Dual Graphics capability.  Once that setting was updated, Catalyst Control Center identified the capability and allowed dual graphics to be enabled.  The location of this setting in the BIOS will vary by manufacturer.

Dual graphics is bad, using a strong dedicated gpu (and by not using any dual graphics features) you get better performance.
