Looks promising but it also goes to show how badly AMD needs a stand-out processor....

My System Specs


Great article as always Sky.

I hope AMD will develop a high end x86 cores again, I don't care if they can't compete with an i7, if they can compete with an i5 then I'm sold. I understand that they cannot win in the x86 race so they bet it all on APUs but it's not every program will run in HSA. Even if HSA sounds promising.

While it is cool that APU users now have a motherboard like this, I'm not sure it makes sense for the target market. The customers who would take advantage of ROG features would usually be running AM3 or Z87/X79 right?
