If this enables inexpensive notebooks to have real 3D performance then I am sold, my Atom based portable can't even handle Minecraft without choking. Come on AMD, lets see what kind of power consumption to performance numbers you are offering this generation

I await the reviews.

This is where AMD shines. Their APUs kick ass. I cannot believe you can play (some) modern games on integrated graphics at good framerates.
