That sounds about right. They said about a third of their shipped desktop chips lack iGPUs. This is probably referring to the FX line-up, but I have no way of being certain.

Yes, we get it. These are mediocre. It's little core and has a grand total of 128 GPU cores. HOWEVER, a motherboard + APU setup will only cost $80 or so for a "high"-end option. That's a phenomenal price. However, expansion options are limited at best. I wouldn't even want this for a home server: only two SATA ports and only an x4 slot for expansion. Granted, that only really matters for SSDs, not HDDs, but still. Jaguar isn't the greatest either, but the power consumption for this sort of purpose is nice.
I also find it funny that they used Dolphin for benchmarking and that Kaveri is faster than a Wii.
