Sources: AMD, FT [analyst predictions]
quote: AMD is confident that its APUs will beat similar Intel Corp. (INTC) Ivy Bridge system-on-a-chip designs in price, battery life, and graphics, though it concedes that Ivy Bridge will likely have more computing power.
quote: Llano can actually play skyrim relatively well at 720p. Obviously it's not full size discrete performance but it's playable on medium, which is similar in settings scaled to consoles. It's not bad at all for portable device gaming.
quote: ...since Conroe I can't justify spending my cash on anything they have to offer.
quote: Computing power is a MAJOR factor in buying ANY computer
quote: I like how AMD fans excuse AMDs cpu shortcomings with "good enough" but endlessly criticize Intels graphics.
quote: Intel's graphics drivers have been woeful in the past.
quote: I never hear an AMD fan say: AMDs graphics are better, but Intels are "good enough"
quote: I wrote a paper on the idea of "good enough" computing back in 2001. What I and others predicted has largely come true for the everyday consumer. Smartphones and tablets aren't power houses
quote: APU graphics performance just isn't there yet to do any real gaming with to be taken seriously (so you can run skyrim on low at 800x600 @ 30fps... who cares?)
