Plus the other half of GPUs... drivers.

Why don't you use the very reality of benchmarks to see what's going on? Their APUs, that are currently out, can already play 3-year-old games, with multiple time less cores than a discreet GPU would have, and with mediocre cooling and VRAM compared to a discreet GPU (actually no VRAM at all).

Do you still think they can't make a good discreet GPU?
