I doubt anyone can play MW2 or BlackOps with them at high details.
I love AMD/ATI but Sandy Bridge IGP is no worse than AMD Fusion APUs. They should bring something to destroy crappy Intel IGP yet all AMD do is focusing on power/heat stuff.
If they somehow manage to integrate a 5750 level of GPU into their processors then it would change everything.
AMD Fusion will eventually feature APUs with graphics as powerful as the HD6990 and beyond that, but right now, AMD is focused on the low power/heat market, obviously, because AMD needs to catch up with Intel in the Atom/netbook market. But once AMD has destroyd Intel's Atom, AMD Fusion will feature way more powerful graphics.
And besides, the Evergreen series all have excellent graphics cards. I mean, the cheapest budget Evergreen is even more powerful than the Xenos GPU in the Xbox 360.
Unless Intel buys up nVidia, Intel won't stand a chance against AMD Fusion, and neither will nVidia for that matter (I predict nVidia will buy up VIA for the x86-64 license).Edited by EliasAlucard - 12/30/10 at 4:25am
