    Ah ,thanks. So according to toms review you could get bit more fps by using ddr3 1866MHz rams. Could you Micheal do the quick memory comparing test with i.e. 1060,1333,1600 and 1866 MHz rams?
    From a german site, but the graph does not need any explanation, besides blue=games, red=apps, green=weighted:

    The pic of the motherboard suggested 2 x 2GB sticks at 1600 :

    It would be nice if Phoronix could include an Ivy Bridge system in the next graphics comparison, since this is an APU.

    I'd be interested to see how they stack up against each other in linux, not just how it compares to discrete cards.

    I realize it means the CPUs will have different speeds, but you can pick some i3 ivy bridge cpu to stay close - or just pick any ivy bridge you have and list the prices for each so we can compare them.

    Michael, what memory did you use? As the igpu uses main memory the speed of ddr3 has hefty impact for gaming benchmark results.

    Only an Intel idiot would post any Anandtech bentmarks.

    And who's says they are quitting the desktop market?

    Nobody will look to spend $50-100 less for the CPU AND run a crossfire setup at the same time. It doesn't make sense. The top end of these CPUs stops about where the low end of Sandy Bridge starts.
    You're curious about the setup, I can accept that. But I just don't buy AMD's talk that CPU power has ceased to matter right where they started failing to compete.

    Why not crossfire on an Atom board? That would make as much sense as your own suggestion.
    These are low-budget CPU, there's no use in trying to put it any other way.

    Congratulations!!!!

    You've just won the 'Epitome of ignorance' award.

    If you are interested in seeing the laughing stock, find a mirror. YOU'RE IT. One who is so worried about the "cool factor" of CPUs that you make CPU vendors a personal issue.

    Personally, I'm quite happy with AMD chips, and have been burned a few times by Intel. If I need more performance, I'll just buy more chips. It'll still cost me less.
