AMD A8-3850 APU Review: Llano Hits the Desktop
Thanks for the review, I've read a lot but this one I've missed. Anyway as we can see in this review the dual graphics between A8 and 6670 should improve in-game FPS which does not happens to me. Moreover my video quality and FPS are better when I use the dedicated HD6670 alone as the primary display device. I don't think this is normal.

Thanks for the reply but I beg to say different. Please see AMD Radeon Dual Graphics

Also, check the settings in Catalyst, make sure the box is checked, and don't forget to download the latest CAP.

WEI doesn't accurately reflect the Dual graphics rating, AFAIK.
Here's what I've done:

- With the 6670 not plugged in I've setup BIOS to use the primary display graphics ONBOARD
- Installed the latest AMD Catalyst (12.8)
- Plugged in the discreet card and put monitor cable from onbord DVI to the dedicated DVI
- Enabled in Catalys the AMD Dual Graphics option (there is no Crossfire option only this one)

With all this I don't have a check box in Catalyst, here's what I see:
