Honestly the way the market is going AMD is way ahead of Intel until Intel gets a better APU.
Right but that doesn’t mean this wont change within a few years or however long it might “theoretically” take for a competitor to match or overtake them in this segment of the market. Keep in mind while AMD seems no longer willing to compete with Intel in the performance desktop arena, Intel has made no such concessions on the APU platform (as far as I know but I guess I could be wrong there). AMD may need every bit of their current lead in this respect. Honestly, its not as if AMD never had a performance lead over Intel before,….and lost it.

Also as I was trying to suggest before, ARM may overtake x86 in the mobile market significantly in the future (phones, tablets and yes laptops or even in some cases servers). If that happens, what good is AMD’s APU lead assuming that lead isn’t wrestled away from them by a competitor like Intel that has considerably superior financial recourses.

Its been rumored that Apple will move OS X to ARM architecture and we already know Microsoft is hard at work on Windows 8 on ARM. Who knows which way the wind will blow,….?

Beyond Apex

AMD is leveraging it's igp hd 7900G series by 2013
With both cpu and igp humming alongside a discrete card hd7990
utilizing HSA

Certainly we are entering a new era of heterogeneous systems architecture
where both cpu and igp compute simultaneously
soon laptops will perform similarly as desktops do at a fraction the price
low heat, low noise ,low price solutions.
There wont be much of a reason to not move on to smaller platforms for all but extremists.

Desktops provide for upgrades and upgrades and upgrades, laptops are normally limited due to proprietary designs.

I am with Mailman on this one, however I think that instead of tablets having more power than a desktop, I think what is going to happen is that we stuff so much power into the portable devices that we effectively don't need the power a desktop gives anymore. Also, with newer ports such as USB3.0 and Thunderbolt means that we can easily have a docking station attached to our "portable computer", and connect all our shits through that. I have not used a desktop as my primary machine for years already, and I don't miss the "oh but you cannot upgrade lolololol" part. My shitty laptop provides me with enough power for my gaming and work needs, I will replace it with another laptop when this one gets decommissioned. I am more than willing to sacrifice some performance for portability and convenience.

I kind of agree with the Mailman78...

I've been seeing this coming for years , laptop are becoming better much powerful & pretty soon it will be cheaper to buy than a Desktop at same performance level

Custom PC will becoming obsolete in the next decade , look around you guys do you still see electronic repair chop near you?
Not much ill bet if any , repairs cost more or than buying something new most of the time or if cheaper it won't be by that much

Same will go for laptop soon , example you paid a laptop $500 & dies in about 18 months coast or repair $300 , buying a new laptop $450 which will be at least 25% faster then the one you bought at $500 a year & half before , which will you choose?

As everything becoming "all in one" & cheaper to built well... need to say more?

BTW: Still don't like laptops vs desktop but i may have to soon enough...:mad:

I love my Notebook and Tablet, and the ease of useis fantastic, but when it comes to real Gaming, my Desktop blows any of my portable devices in the dust.

There's just something cool about building a gaming/everyday use PC that is fun. I also like the fact I can upgrade it with anything I wish for.

Desktops are losing popularity, but not at the rate people think. They will continue to be a healthy desktop market for many years to come. :D
