Quoted from above....

From the PCWorld review it is supposed to come close to a HD 7800

"The integrated GPU will run in concert with a discrete AMD Radeon HD 6670 graphics card using AMD's CrossFire X performance, which should nearly double graphics performance. For roughly $80, the system would offer graphics performance approaching AMD's midrange Radeon HD 7850 discrete graphics card in many applications."

That site won't load on my phone right now, but I believe from what you posted its an article, not a review. Hexus has a review showing the best result being 40%improvment in dirt 3 and fps losses in batman vs just the 6670. So I would prefer a faster single graphics card, but if you have low gaming needs and get a good price on 6670, then why not.
