Good news indeed from AMD, hopefully they can maintain their roadmap, and release products on time. Oh and hitting their performance marks would be nice too.
AMD's APUs have have good price per performance from the start.
They're not high-end, but they work well.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
exactly, from a price-performance perspective their cpus perform well but their high end is about intel's midrange. They really need a boost and it needs to come from other sectors of computing because it's not coming from their desktop lineup.
btw that keyboard/dock/cover in the picture looks amazing!!!!!! MUCH nicer than the one for the Surface!!! More comfortable and natural because it's almost identical to a laptop!
Soooo, does that mean no CPU only Steamroller this year? Or no CPU only part at all for steamroller?
I think this could mark a bit of a turn-around for AMD but you'll never see them trying to one-up Intel at the very top of their product stack again. It just doesn't make sense from a manufacturing standpoint and the majority of the market doesn't sell a lot of PCs on these super high end SKUs.

this is cool :)
While currently I only reason I would use an APU is for a HTPC I do like the fact AMD is starting to do a turnaround with these and better processors overall. Ive always been a fan of AMD even if I own Intel. The do have the best price/preformance ratio and its good they succeed.
