Hi,

I have a 4 year old HP Pavilion dv6-6128ca with an A6-3410MX APU and a HD 6520G GPU. I know that an APU is sort of a processor combined with a GPU. I've noticed before that in my Device Manager Display adapters list I have an "AMD Radeon 6600M and 6700M series" GPU listed as well the HD 6520G. Is that the GPU combined with the APU?

Thanks!

Oh, now I think I know what you are asking. The 6600M is a discrete card, while the 6520G is on the same chip as the CPU. I am not sure if Llano had Crossfire between discrete/Integrated, though. I think the other APUs did though.

I've already read these. Unfortunately nothing about an "AMD Radeon 6600M and 6700M series".
