My System Specs


It'll beat the snot out of Intel's integrated graphics, but will fall short when it comes to CPU focused tasks...It's basically just an improvement over Llano, not a major revolution.

It'll make a great platform if you want a Very SFF PC (say in your living room) and won't have room for a discrete GPU. It should game adequately.

If you DO have room for a discrete GPU however, the best bet is a low power Intel I3 and a small GPU such as a 7750.
