Looking at the specs, it's got half as many GCN cores (is that the right way of saying it?) as a 7850 and is clocked about 12% slower. At best it would be about half as powerful but it's not going to have gddr5 so my guess is roughly 40-45% the performance of the 7850 depending on resolution with about the CPU performance of a Gen1 i5 if what TC said was true, I'm assuming that's comparing the 3.7 clocks to the original i5 clocks, not per clock.

So it'd be pretty good for anything up until now, I wouldn't buy it for current games though. If the CPU performance is accurate it will be great for Minecraft/MMOs and I know a lot of people who play exclusively minecraft.
Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there

It basically means you slap together a really inexpensive FM2+ build ($500 or less) and play any of today's games at medium settings without a dedicated graphics card.

Hell, you wouldn't need more than a 200W PSU

Also, notebooks will have them

512 is as many cores as a radeon 7750 (an xbox one has 768)

Steamroller is supposed to be 20% better IPC coming from richland

If bulldozer began as a hybrid dual module, steamroller has full fledged cores

I'm curious, how much would this cost? Might be good for my brother, especially if it can fit into a small, easily portable case.

FM2+ and APU is about $200

Figure Another $200 for case, RAM, PSU, HDD

Hmph. Really quite reasonable, especially for the performance you'll be getting out of it, and even lower if you can reuse stuff.

This is pretty cool news. It's interesting how powerful integrated GPUs are getting these days.

While not as powerful as most of our intel stuff, at least the point is, with the existence of these, you can shut off console fanboys who said PC needs to be expensive to keep up.

Yeah, I know my first thought when new hardware comes out is how I can use it against people who play on consoles.
