This is absolutely true. AMD should really market heavy here this is where they can mop up with Intel. They offer a BETTER product in the mobile x86 sector for CHEAPER. I have been exclusively recommending APU laptops for the past 18 months. I would EXCLUSIVELY recommend APU tablets and buy one myself. why? BETTER GRAPHICS PERFORMANCE.
AMD have the product, they just need to execute the marketing and get the design wins. Z60 Hondo is agruably equal to or better(espically graphics) than Atom Z2760(Clovertrail) in performance, but You can quite a few Clovertrail Windows 8 tablets out there for sale but no product being sold with Hondo. Temash, a product due for mass production this quarter still haven't announced a single design win.
Intel do have a competitor for Temash in the new 22nm Atom SOC( Baytrail, quadcore 22nm Out of Order new architecture with Ivy GPU's shader ALU) due in Q3, while it might not score as high on a Graphic benchmark, it might have a significant edge on Temash in Battery Life(Clovertrail tablets already have 7-9 hr battery life on 32nm process, 22nm Baytrail would improve upon that mark and match most if not all ARM tablets).
