AMD Radeon R6 M340DX
The AMD Radeon R6 M340DX (Dual Graphics) is a hybrid Crossfire combination of the integrated Radeon R6 (e.g Carrizo A10-8700) and a dedicated Radeon R5 M330. Both cards work in AFR mode (alternate frame rendering) where each card renders alternating frames. Therefore, micro-stuttering can occur due to the different frame times between two frames.
Interestingly, the integrated Radeon R6 is faster than the dedicated Radeon R5 M330 and offers more shaders. Still both cards are based on the GCN architecture.
The Dual Graphics solution will draw more power than a single GPU and may not be as efficient as a single card solution.
