    I think Kaveri did well considering the price point. Obviously AMD lags Intel a lot these days - and I say that as an AMD fanboy. I have three desktops in the house with AMD processors.

    Really, I think for desktops the current APU that makes the most sense is the A10-7800. You get most of the performance of the 7870 for a much lower power draw. My wife's computer as the A10-6700 and it runs fine and is whisper quiet all of the time.

    How much do they take each when idle?

    I'm still hoping AMD will respond with an enthusiast APU. I'd love a fat APU with 14/16 nm fab processing + HBM and no additional ddr3/4 ram for a compact pc.

    I miss the relation to the prices.
    You say that as though the article made product recommendations. Price is irrelevant when you're comparing performance-per-watt. This article is just simply showing facts - calm down.

    Phoronix: Linux Power Efficiency Of Skylake, Broadwell, Haswell & Kaveri Compared

    Last week from the new Intel Core i5 6600K "Skylake" processor I posted the initial Linux CPU benchmarks as well as results for the new HD Graphics 530 graphics processor with Intel's open-source Linux graphics driver stack. In this article are some complementary data points for this Core i5 Skylake CPU compared to Haswell and Broadwell processors as well as a AMD A10-7870K Godavari APU.
