I use none of those programs so won't be buying Steamroller.

What apps do you use???

Piledriver is just as good as Steamroller at desktops TDPs so I wouldn't buy one with the sole intention of improving CPU performance. It will make a nice notebook chip but all of a sudden Steamrollers omission from desktop roadmaps makes a whole lot of sense. No point in investing substantial amounts of money in launching a new product when it's a marginal improvement at best.

I like Jaguar, I really do, but lithography is entirely relevant and Intel has the lead there. Density is irrelevant here; hell, if anything, for small cores, a lower density is preferable; but a more energy-efficient design is king. FinFET > planar here.
I don't know what is wrong with me as of late yesterday I mistakely claimed a processor I owned (i5-2300) was a i5-2400 and today I state that a dual core can take on quad core baytrail I of course meant the A6-1650.

Just browsing the internet, Microsoft Word, virus scanner and casual gaming. and Windows media player.


In fact, a pentium 4 could meet my needs.

Oh it doesn't even need to be the A6-1650, the A4-5000 competes with the Z3770 competently.

However... You're comparing a tablet SoC with a SDP of ~4W and a TDP of ~7W to an APU with a full 15W TDP. Entirely different markets and aims.

Probably not, I doubt a P4 can properly do HD video.

The A6-1450 is a 8W SDP chip and when the tablet is docked it can run higher clocks and then use up to 15W.
That is why I brought it up because Mullins with it's Puma cores will get a 30% increase over Jaguar cores while Mullins will also bring gains to the gpu side but more importantly cut the SDP in half.

APUs will never replace graphics cards.

Not necessarily. For end-users they already are. Why else are these the most popular GPUs, and in this order, on Steam:

Intel HD Graphics 4000
Intel HD Graphics 3000
Intel HD Graphics 2000
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660

I'm not lying. The first AMD card is number 11. I just really wish Intel would fix their godawful drivers. In the GPU industry that's just asking for a couple programmers, a week or so of work, and several pots of coffee.
