Summary: i bought this elsewhere, but i am adding this review so that others are aware of my experience. amd, listen, when you advertise an apu like this one as the best thing out there for gaming, for media, for 3d, for hd, etc, i expect that the drivers you issue are capable of taking full advantage of what the hardware can do. don't know what im talking about yet? does bug 570 [...] sound familiar? probably not because you've never bothered to respond.
Summary: AMD must be joking. For the unaware, with AMD's current architecture, they give each core twice the integer units, and call it two cores. As such, to get the real core count, divide it by two. This thing is slower than an i3, uses like 4 times the power, and the iGPU isn't even that good. Seriously, Intel's Iris Pro 5200 is faster. 14553 for Intel on 3DMark06 vs 11935 in 3DMark06 for this. Plus, the power consumption and heat generation of this thing is horrible.
