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. forums.lenovo.com/t5/T400-T500-and-newer-T-series/… – Gutsygibbon Nov 15 '12 at 15:51
