There has been a lot of talk recently about AMD's new A10-6800K Richland based APU processor. The hot topic at the moment is what graphics cards the APU will crossfire with.
I have observed various posts on online forums claiming the APU works fine with the Radeon HD7750 and many people disagreeing. I would just like to clear things up for people who are perhaps
considering purchasing these components. I decided to give it a go for myself and found the A10-6800K Crossfired with the Radeon HD7750 without any issues. Literally plug and play,
once the drivers were installed, it just worked. In fact, the performance gain I observed was nothing short of astonishing. See the following screenshots:

Bioshock Infinite, Battlefield 3 and Farcry 3 all running on High/Ultra settings at 1280x720 resolution. Now you might not fall over with excitement at this, however when you take into
consideration the fact you can pick up one of these processors an FM2 motherboard and the HD7750 for less than the price of a GTX 660Ti, it becomes a very appealing option for
people on a tight budget. Throw in the other components and you've got yourself a gaming PC capable of playing the latest games on Ultra for less than £500. Amazing.
