Total performance improvement on average is about 3%

And it runs much hotter. Kaveri, on the other hand, runs 97.4-738.4% faster than its predecessor:

What do you guys think, is AMD about to become competitive again?

Also how is the actual processing power? I really don't care about integrated performance.
