I think ideally they made this chip for 2 markets really...
1) Notebooks Primarily
2) & HTPC Computers
Obviously in a Full ATX or mATX case there will be better choices, like the i5-2500k & a dedicated Video Card..
But I must say, this gives me new appreciation as to why AMD was holding out all the info, though many of us tech suspected AMD had a real winner in this chip!
I knew this was going to be the big chip for them, in fact, I predicted on OCN that AMD would be dominating the Mobile Market with Llano, clearly they have the winner in this chip, and did you see that RAM OC! Man, that's insane! This APU pretty much owns Intel, seriously, and I cannot wait to see prices! (Sorry haven't been researching leaks)
I don't know how long a good battery will last on this chip, so we really gotta wait to see just how good their engineering is here, for to really win the whole shebang, they have got to have long lasting battery life too.
Obviously Jeff @ AMD wasn't pulling our leg about them wanting to beat Intel in the 3 Major Points.... I think this is probably a great indicator of what Bulldozer will be for us when it does finally get released... (August?)
I'm pleased, very much so, now I can go out buy my first Laptop when Llano does hit the shelves!
(28 Years in computers and I have never owned a mobile computer other than a normal cell phone!)
