AMD A8-7600 and R7 240 in CrossFire mode to the test

AMD’s APU A8-7600 is situated in barely in the medium to high range of the company’s catalog, especially thanks to its 4 core CPU based in the Steamroller architecture.

These specifications render it as a component that wouldn’t be able to supply an acceptable performance for games on its own if we up the resolution to 1080p at medium quality.

There is no doubt, the escalation offered by this Crossfire configuration is very good, since, for example, in Battlefield 4, Tomb Raider and BioShock Infinite it can double its performance, which turns it into an option to take into account for everyone who wants to set a basic equipment on which to upgrade later on.

One thought on “AMD A8-7600 and R7 240 in CrossFire mode to the test

  1. You did not test for frame time variance, and minimum frame rate, dual graphics are only good for benchmarks but due to stutter and frame drops il get a more expensive dedicated gpu and turn off the igp
