The only good things that come out of this fusion fiasco is the free martini glasses they give me



The actual drink tasted like turpentine... dumped it and kept the glass

Looks like they corrected the numbers somewhat for the MSI review. Their gigabyte review was almost 20% off on the power consumption... I'm guessing because their 800w power supply isn't so efficient at low draw. I can't push mine past 37w at the outlet in an identical configuration. With a pci-e power draw gpu (I used a 4670), draw generally doesn't reach 80w load.

My configuration: Gigabyte E-350 board, 2x2GB HyperX, Kingston SNVP-325 128gb, Teac Slot load optical

For those wondering, I ran 3dMark03 and got about 5,000 with the apu, and 20,000 with the 4670.

Kind of a shame I found this. I just finished taking pictures and was going to do a detailed review of the GA-E350N-USB3 and the SG05. Not sure about that any more.

I was sort of expecting more from it.

Oh well!
