Hopefully, we see OEM support

That AMD reference tablet looks promising. I want a nice portable gaming Windows 8.1 tablet. The GPU performance definitely looks adequate. I've only read the Anandtech preview so far, and they had nothing on battery life. Time to dig into the other previews.

They had more than anybody else as far as I can see.

Yeah, no one had the tablet long enough to conduct battery tests. But seeing the power draw, we can maybe expect Atom-like battery numbers, but GPU performance that is closer to Haswell. Nice.

Noe that's a new type of oxymoron. If you want something for gaming, why does it need to run Windows? More choice was my first guess, but how many Windows games play nice on a tablet?

As a side note, ATI/AMD must really congratulate themselves for selling Imageon to Qualcomm.

Because all the real games are still on Windows. Civilization 5 would likely run acceptably, and would actually work well on touch. League of Legends and DOTA 2 would probably also be touch friendly. Not sure how well MMOs would work, but I'd be willing to try. Path of Exile is another that would work well with touch. You can keep Candy Crush and whatever. I'll take the depth and variety that comes in my Steam library.

"I'll take the depth and variety that comes in my Steam library."

Don't forget that Steam is rolling out their Linux-based Steam Box, and actively porting games to Linux including AAA titles. Microsoft Windows is becoming an increasingly irrelevant part of the modern computing equation.
