7790 with GDDR5 is going to obliterate GT3e with DDR.
I for one am ecstatic about GDDR5 APUs, if someone comes along with GDDR5 memory modules, we're actually going to have a system where you can upgrade your VRAM. It's going to basically be a 7790 exactly.
Now, compare to Haswell. 3dmark11 is extremely favorable to Haswell, and here's what we see with HD4600:
And here's what 7790 looks like:
Kaveri GPU is going to be over 4 times faster than HD4600 in 3dmark, and considering HD4600 seems to be twice as good at 3dmark11 than it is in games, I wouldn't be surprised if Kaveri GPU performance in games was 8 times better than HD 4600.
And Intel is going to get beat down in price/performance.
