Hi, AOC runs for me with maxed settings at 15 - 20 fps (12 on open, detailed/crowded areas)
i wanted to know if that fps is right for my specifications, or if i can do more to improve my fps (if not, then i guess i will just lower some settings). thanks for any help.

1) Either you have two different GPU which is kinda frequent in laptop, where the machine swap from one to another to save power, for instance using the more powerful GPU only when using games.
It's possible that the software dectects only the hardware activeat the time of the detection, thus detecting only the HD4000. And maybe for some reason the HD7670 doesn't turn on when launching AoC. Anyway, you should be able to force the computer to turn on and you the HD7670 if there's one. (For Nvidia, you can right-click on the desktop and choose "Nvidia control panel", no idea for AMD/ATI but it should be roughly the same). Then you can try to launch AoC and it should be running fine.
2) Or you have only the HD 4000 and the person who told you there's also a HD7670 was trying to scam you. But in no way you can have a crossfire betwenn the hd4000 and the hd7670, that's not how a crossfire work. But it's possible to have both of the GPU on the same computer, though, they just will switch on and off to have only one of the two active at any time.
There's plenty of ways to know if you actually have two GPU, though.
You can crossfire an AMD APU with a discrete graphics card, so it's not all a lie. It is however not worth the effort due to poor graphical power.
Not the same thing. The fact that two things are working together is not Crossfire. Crossfire refers to a specific technology that allows two or more graphics cards to talk directly (more or less) to one another so they can balance workloads quite efficiently. By comparison the data path between a PCIe GPU and CPU is much more expensive relatively speaking, expensive enough that the workload balancing you can do is limited.
