If they can make video card into a CPU that small and less watts then they could just build GPU on a socket die and never have to worry about PCIE and never look back. I would like to see Desktop G34 socket with 8 - 24 core that are 32mb cache for L1 and L2 and L3 and DDR3/DDr4 quad channel memory support desktop/workstation CPU with a new chipset for motherboard that handle 128 lane and 12 USB support and 12 SATA support and other as well. I would called the new CPU (Caterpillar) vs Steamroller. AMD getting nothing to be hot air lol. If I was the CEO I would know better to keep up with intel and be affordable price for consumer.
I guess I can dream a little.
From your post, most notably the first sentence and final suggestion, I can only conclude that you're trolling right now. Nevertheless, if you aren't, and rather are misinformed or simply ignorant of APUs' purpose and true potential, I highly suggest you read the following: Heterogeneous System Architecture
. Put simply, APUs and HSA are the biggest computing innovation in many, many years; as well as easily among the biggest programming innovations of all time.
Also, some quick questions: if APUs are "old tech", why did they just start showing up in 2011? If they are a "waste", why is AMD now developing server APUs, and why is Intel creating their own GPGPU alternative, albeit inferior to HSA, in the form of Quicksync? Why are ARM, Qualcomm, Samsung, TI, LG, and a huge number of other corporations and groups supporting the HSA Foundation if HSA has no point?
