yes they will sure be faster than lets say a phenom II or a bulldozer but amd will be releasing the FX series based on the piledriver cores with AM* chipset that dont include integrated graphics
i was talking about llano in my previous post as you now pay 130$ or something for a quad core llano, when u can pay 100 for a quad core phenom II or even a 6 core phenom II (clocked at 3.0ghz just like llano)
and llano cores are based on the same cores as phenom II so higher clockspeed = better performance and more cores also = better performance
i didnt mention the quad core bulldozers as some people might not like these chips
but at micro center you can a 6core bulldozer for 120 dollars, still cheaper than the llano apu's and overclock much better so even though ipc is lower the clock speed might make it up
now do you see my point?
why pay extra for the onboard graphics when you will not use it?
though its important to note that AM* piledrivers will come months after trinity and the FM2 platform, so yes within that period your argument is valid and trinity apus might offer the best cpu performance from AMD.
