    If they did a better job designing the chip, the laptop shouldn't need to use a completely different chip to get better battery life..

    There's no reason a graphics chip shouldn't be able to power down cores, just the same as an Intel CPU..
    Really? I just hate that AMD dropped XGP http://www.amd.com/us/products/techn...s/ati-xgp.aspx which would have been awesome for those that want just a laptop but with the option for high end multiGPU performance when at home.

    That and in the pre APU days I hoped for OpenCL on the IGP+sideport ram with a decent dedicated GPU for everything else. Now I want to do the same with an A8 series APU and at least a 6670.
