Speed isn't the problem, its that is uses 50 percent more power and is only 5 dollars less than a IB Celeron.

Who cares it if it on the same die as the gpu in all honesty. That is like saying get a Pentium 4 over a Core 2 because it has a gpu on the die which most IGP's have been able to come close to for years performance wise..Really that is the performance difference between the two in all honesty. Netburst vs Core.

The CPU on this is basically a X2 4600 6 year later. I mean really lol

Sorry, this A4 Richmond processor just made me lose respect for AMD big time and I had to comment. I do like the 6800k

Look at it this way. It's the same as Intel launching a new line of celeron processors biggrin.gif
