Seeing as how mobile is a large portion of the sales of these chips, I think they can't afford to skimp out on any facet of Kaveri. Here's to hoping more vendors put more AMD chips in their systems after this.
Hi guys, I'm the writer of B&C.
Kaveri/Bald Eagle will not have GDDR5 IMC, with this APU revision. Maybe, a new revision (late 2014) will have a GDDR5 IMC. GDDR5 memory is too expansive.

About the GPU frequency, we have to evaluate that a Radeon HD7750 (512SP, 8CU, GCN 1.0) generates 920 GFlops @900 MHz (SP). Also, I know that actually Kaveri ESamples can generate a similiar amount of GFlops (~930) at the same frequency. So Kaveri GPU will run at 1GHz (or more) to reach the goal of 1050 GFlops that AMD claimed during 2012.
However, Kaveri will be a great APU.
P.S. Kaveri is made by GloFo.
