I'm reaching the conclusion because that's what reviewers are saying.
Also please, source on the 37W number please. It makes no sense unless the chip did not have any power saving features turned on. Even then it wouldn't make sense as it would need to be loaded in order to pull that much.
Or it might be some misleading kill-a-watt, from the wall number.

I'm going to make the most unfair comparison I've ever made on OCN so there goes:
Iris pro is equivalent of a gt650m while AMD's apu has the power equivalent of a HD7850.
The HD7850 desktop version as found in the apu is about 3 to 4x as strong as the gt650m.
You killed the money argument I killed the power consumption argument.
I have no idea what you're trying to say.
And you can't throw power consumption out of the window when it comes to mobile hardware because you can't stuff desktop hardware in ultrabooks and the like.
