I don't know if anyone has done this lol ., but I had an extra 570 laying around and the board supported it CX to a point also that was Corsair TX 650 watt on the pull as everything is running default clocks with 8Gb card master and 4Gb salve .

I was amazed as I didn't think the 2200g has that kind of PCI Express lanes to support it but I was wrong.. kind tells you where the mining cards could come in use as a second card because I though the scaling was great as the single card did 13,002 gpu score .

I'd be more concerned with the motherboard than the apu, honestly:
1 x PCI Express x16 slot, running at x16 (PCIEX16)
* For optimum performance, if only one PCI Express graphics card is to be installed, be sure to install it in the PCIEX16 slot.
* Actual support may vary by CPU.
(The PCIEX16 slot conforms to PCI Express 3.0 standard.)
1 x PCI Express x16 slot, running at x4 (PCIEX4)
1 x PCI Express x1 slot
(The PCIEX4 and PCI Express x1 slots conform to PCI Express 2.0 standard.)
Your second dGPU is only running at 4x PCI-E 2.0, at most. Maybe enough, but only because that's not a particularly strong CPU driving it.
 
I don't know the right settings for Heaven as this is 1080p High with 8xAA and Extreme Tessellation as if it's working or not ?

 
The APU has 8x lanes IIRC? The second 16x slot is running off the chipset.

So you 8xCPU/4x chipset which is a pretty well known crossfire configuration with known downsides in games.
 
That score is actually pretty impressive (/CLAP)! This could be a cool idea for a gaming rig that can do well 1080p, be small build, and not cost an arm and leg. TLDR Great entry level PC right there.
 
I put the 1400 in at 4Ghz and now 580 + 570 = http://www.3dmark.com/fs/17512146 as the board I would say is good for that much PCI Express bandwidth on the gpu score .

Now I want to try my 290x with 570 just to try it lol .
