Seems like a load of OTT marketing guff for what is essentially a low cost, budget CPU.

So therefore if it's low cost more will buy it and therefore marketing the products makes perfect sense?

A processor's relevance to the market isn't limited to "flagship" products. If Kaveri APUs are successful it will be because they hit the right balance between computing performance, graphics performance, and price. Most people don't need a more powerful CPU for everyday use, and the on-die GPU keeps getting better, so more will decide to go this route instead of a dedicated graphics card if they're on a tight budget. A $150 APU should certainly outsell a $120 i3 + $110 dGPU combination, if the performance is similar. The market hype which precedes each new release is always overdone in the hope that this one will be the magic bullet that changes the entire budget PC landscape, at least in the eyes of the buying public. Kaveri may turn out to be the generation that finally gets close enough to be very relevant in this market segment. Even I, a die-hard Intel builder, have been considering using APUs for my budget builds. Richland didn't quite make the cut, like Trinity and Llano before it, but who knows? I hope they close the gap this time; Intel will have to respond with price cuts, and the consumer wins whatever they buy.

Oh c'mon MSI, where the Hell is your FM2+ Gaming series? I guess they don't want my money...
