I know the HD4000 isn't there to compete against this APU, just providing the contradiction for those that are thinking this APU is performing in the HD4000's ballpark.
CPU bottleneck. Shouldn't be (as much of) a problem for manufacturers who actually bother to include turbo or, you know, decide not to use an 8W chip in a class of notebooks typically using 17W chips. I doubt the 15W 1.65GHz Kabini (and that includes the integrated FCH; Intel's 17W TDP doesn't include the PCH IIRC) or the 25W (again including the FCH) 2GHz Kabini will have this issue.
I wonder if you can overclock these things. My Llano laptop was incredibly easy to overclock using K10STAT... set bclk, multi, and voltage for each P state and done! I was able to get a 50% overclock at stock voltage Edited by Usario - 5/19/13 at 3:16pm
