Next year when Stars+ come out, then AMD will be able to say 'our APUs are now powered by one of the most powerful x86 architectures in the world' (if that is indeed true).
To supplement this, the llano chips that AMD has shown off are all low power consumption APUs for laptops (the fastest llanos will be for a desktop platform). I think this is just standard marketing to convince OEMs to buy llano not sandy for laptops as that will make AMD way way more money than FX.
Futhermore, there are no other AMD APUs in the laptop market yet so AMD is not really hurting themselves with the videos whereas Phenom sales would stop if official BD benchmarks where released.
Unlike Intel, who can kill a popular socket (LGA 1366) without blinking a eye, even one lost Phenom sale hurts the underdog AMD.
