now that the new amd cpu/gpu fusion chip is out; there is some kinda claim that they will work in conjunction with a mobo gpu cpu combination. but i haven't seen a really clear explanation, any good links or explanation would be appreciated.

i currently have the gpu 6950>>6970 flashed on a 785g mobo

whats the spin on the new apu acting as a crossfire device. im looking for a clear explanation, would it be worth getting new mobo/apu. any thoughts, or better yet, actual numbers on increased performance.

peace

ed

btw is it worth upgrading my amd system, or .....

Is made for office work, not gaming, So there is no need to crossfire via the hybrid mode. That is why no one is interested.

ok, that answers the 2nd question, but amd is claiming that this chip augments the "6000 series" gpu's. is there no interest that this claim is genuine?

I still use my comp 70% office/writing etc. the rest for gaming etc.

concerns i have are energy savings, as well as performance.

btw, I received email from vendors before maxpc even had a article about the apu in there latest issue

Is there any dedicated memory for the on-board video or does it run off system ram? How much is there and how fast is the dedicated ram if there is any?
