    Thanks! I'll use those boards to compare the total system cost to a Haswell system with an H8x/B8x chipset.

    I'll probably have to wait until these boards come with an updated BIOS unless I can update the BIOS even with a Kaveri APU installed. Also, maybe by that time there will be more mini-ITX Kaveri compatible boards to choose from.

      Crazy high or crazy low ? One dollar CDN is about 0.91 US right now.

        AMD Kaveri A8-7600 MSRP $119

        From a number of reviews, the AMD Kaveri A8-7600 is supposed to have a MSRP of $119 and if considering all around performance along with added features like TrueAudio, Mantle and GPU acceleration, there are no current Intel chips like it for the price. CPU performance was more important several years ago, but for most people the CPUs are more than enough for general tasks while there is a noticeable difference in graphics and GPU compute and gaming.

        One common task is video transcoding and the AMD Kaveri A8-7600 shows it can accelerate past Intel's best:
