^ As I was saying, I think that we should, as members who are looking forward to what's coming from AMD, try not to get into any hype. AMD's (traditional) performance estimates are sometimes incorrect. It happens. In the end, the last thing I want to happen is to have to deal with a butthurt section of the community all over again.
If you really want something to be excited about regarding AMD and with a guarantee that what is coming is going to be awesome, look to the next level of HSA. This will significantly improve the performance/watt of doing several tasks in an advantageous way not currently matched by any competition (i.e. calculating physics); on top of that, AMD has support from a number of large companies in the large HSA foundation.
You guys should keep in mind that focusing on lowering power consumption/improving performance per watt can help improve performance as a sole aspect as well. I speculated that the addition of RCM on recent AMD processors increase the potential processor clock speed at the same power envelope. This looks like it may be happening with the next-gen RIchland APU. No matter which aspect a company is focusing on improving specifically (performance vs. power consumption), both still probably improve in the end.
