A new golden era of Fusion is here. AMD's Llano platform promises excellent gaming and CPU performance in a single chip.
A lot better than the Sandy Bridge line, graphically. Intel still doesn't have DX11 on one die. The Llano APUs also can get about 1.5GB of VRAM. Bigger power saver than Intel.
Better on graphics but I wasn't impressed with benchmarks as far as CPU production but yes this is the low end version. A Core i5 2500K is $200 and kicks a mega ton's worth of ass. AMD is gonna have to beat that price point and production to out do Intel's Sandybridge. Will have to see when the 6 and 8 core versions hit the market.
These are garbage. It's gunna be all about AMD "Bulldozer" core CPU's coming out in a few months. These APU's are not using the new core.
