Those slides were painfully contrived, as no one of relevance is going to look at those comparisons and think "wait that totally applies to me; I should soooo upgrade my Walmart value-buy editing beast!"
You're right they should have used Intel's best APU (Iris) and a similarly priced AMD product. Oh wait, that wouldn't have been fair because the 7970 would have destroyed anything Intel could muster whilst still being cheaper. Comparing similarly priced products is so unfair
Or maybe you want them to use Intel's best APU, which is several times more expensive than this product so you can claim Intel has the best hardware (and the worst software) but ignoring the massive price difference. In that case they should use the Iris and an AMD A4 to please this crowd
Yeah, $300 7970 and FX 8350 are cheaper than highest end GT3 part. You can even beat cheapest Iris part with $300 7970 on newegg and FX 8320.
This is why Nvidia scoffed at Iris, too.
HIgh end Iris parts cost as much as GTX 780.
Iris may be very good for an iGPU, but it's priced such that the price bracket it falls into leaves it humiliated by everything that costs similarly. And don't forget, 6800k is $50 cheaper.
It is good to see AMD getting software wins like this, they need them, they've been man handled by unfair code for far, far too long.
