    I thought the point was that Intel is faster. Of course you don't notice anything when playing Farmville and watch Youtube videos, but they are still faster. In real world applications, too, that require a lot of power.

    But Llano is not about raw performance anyway, so it's kinda useless to debate it.

    Maybe! Or I suppose more likely, Q1 2012.

    off course SB was a lot of faster in cpu calculation, how many times this should be discussed because we already knew that?

    but the problem is that your forgot that this thread headline is about IGP performance not CPU, which SB graphics cant compete with APU..

    so if you keep talking about raw CPU performance, its kinda useless to debate it here..

    Totaly agree with you, but the topic did come up and people was saying that the difference wasn't so big it mattered. Which is wrong.

    hahahaha.. i understand that :laugh:

    but, i cant discuss about the difference since there is no official benchmark,
    so, lets wait and see...

    I don't think it does. 3.2 GHz Phenom II is $115 and Radeon HD5670 is $60. According to rumors top of the line Llano that was featured here will be priced at $170 and above combination should easily mop the floor with it (not to mention the loss of whatever memory fGPU would take for its operation, which is avoided when using dGPU with its dedicated memory).

    CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz 4 ...

    GPU: HIS H567FO1G Radeon HD 5670 1GB 128-bit DDR3 PCI E...

    AMD will have to drop those prices to make this happen, especially considering the fact that there is no upgrade path for people using existing AM3 boards so the buy-in is even higher than just the cost of APU and expensive memory for performance that is lower than a combination of AMD's existing offerings.

    i hope it would trigger high performance on handheld or portable device

    Just the same thought here! Phenom 9950 @3.2GHz 512Mb HD4850 and it does something like 11-13k with 24/7 settings. I think I'm out of words here.

    CPU's die kinda rarely (never if not OC'd?). And I am pretty sure that the GPU in it will not die any more probably. With a discrete card, you have much more components on the board that can die so... Thats how I see it.

    Look out ARM x86 has a competitor soon.
