I upgraded my computer processor recently to Intel I7 3770K which is a great processor but I was wondering if the Intel HD 4000 could do teamwork with my AMD Radeon HD 6850?

I was also kind of worried if this setup could cause performance loss due the bad things I've heard about using multiple graphics cards.

The big question is: Can my integrated graphics card do teamwork with my primary graphics card?

You can not team up those 2 cards as such. Those two cards wont support Crossfire. And no, there wont be any performance loss. I assume that your OS will let you choose which one to use for what kind of tasks. I would myself get rid off the Intel one since it's bad.

It's better to switch to discrete in BIOS. That cause no trouble. – week Nov 15 '12 at 15:41
Yeap. The Intel one isn't worth having around anyway. – Gutsygibbon Nov 15 '12 at 15:43
I am running Windows 8 and CPU Z can identify both of those bad boys. What do i set to discrete? – Ruuhkis Nov 15 '12 at 15:45
Set the AMD one as your discrete one in the BIOS as recommended by "week". – Gutsygibbon Nov 15 '12 at 15:49
Have a look at this link. This is how the procedure is done on Lenovo. But, my assumption is that even on different BIOS they wont change the general idea too drastically.… – Gutsygibbon Nov 15 '12 at 15:51
