    The CPU speed is largely irrelevant to me, and to a lot of people I think these days. IMO, for home desktops we've been at a "good enough" level for years now. A few cores and a few gigahertz will do it.
    Agreed! I want to see this in SFF. Will look delicious .

    These are low-budget CPU, there's no use in trying to put it any other way.
    Agreed. Crossfire doesn't make tons of sense, but a PRIME setup might. Plug the monitor into the onboard graphics output, and use a dedicated card as a render slave whenever you need performance. When you don't need the performance, shut down the dedicated card completely.

    If AMD will bankrupt, Intel Core i3 will cost at least $500.

    You have a lot to learn about trolling.

    but only the A10-5800K model was provided as a sample to Phoronix by Advanced Micro Devices.

    All of this initial AMD A10 Trinity testing was being done on an MSI FM2-A85XA-G65 motherboard that was provided by AMD.



    Two quotes I saw while skimping. What I would have rather seen or maybe ismply missed was 'Thank you AMD'.

    That's not Trinity APU on Linux, that's 7660D on Linux.
    Exactly the pitfall AMD tried to lure some reviewers in when they allowed ahead of time sneak peeks.
    I'm still convinced that people that don't need to play games get enough GPU from intel and get a (much) more powerful to go along with that. Meanwhile, for serious gaming a dedicated GPU is still needed.

    A million times this. Who knows, those Cinebench binaries are probably running SSE4.2 and AVX on the Intel chips while sticking to SSE2 on the AMD chips
