Looks like and is putting all there hopes and money on mantel doing all the extra work to pull them ahead. They should not release tech for sake of releasing tech.

Default Disappointment in benchmarks.

Pity that existing benchmarks scored poorly compared to Richland. But with HSA, it is the future and with HSA changes in OS and compilers, we shall get a 2X performance boost which very deservedly Kaveri needs. It will take some months and I hope the Linux 14.04 changes for HSA comes first. The catalyst drivers for Linux is already on par with Windows so it is great progress.

Waiting a couple of months before I build a A8 and A10 Kaveri system. F88X chipset with 8 sata ports are great for BTRFS raid 0.

Nice review but...,
Testing the performance of the APU's IGP with 1600 MHz RAM is disappointing. I would think that most who build an APU system for some light gaming would use 2133 MHz RAM. Any possibility that we could see even one test with the faster RAM?

Is it worth upgrading from 5800k to 7850k if using the apu for light gaming?
