      ....and if you think otherwise, you are clueless about hardware PC design and serious gaming
      Or maybe you're the one that is clueless? Historically IGPs sucked because DDR1/DDR2 did not have enough bandwidth to satisfy both the CPU and the GPU. This is already better with DDR3, the GPU part AMD Trinity APU gets pretty close to the performance of a mid-range dedicated GPU, it's mostly the CPU part that limits your frame rate on any AMD APU. And with DDR4 memory IGPs will actually get a chance to challenge the highend dedicated GPUs.

        But DDR4 is still some years in the future.
        By then, there maybe is GDDR6.

        What is high-end today is low-end tomorrow.

          You are ignoring the on-cpu memory on some Haswell variants. Possibly in future AMD cpus too, but nothing heard about them on that yet.
