Thanks for the reply.
True, heard about that as well, but from what I know that hybrid crossfire setup is not worth it, maybe I am wrong. Just curious
In my mind APUs with proper GPU's make sense in laptops, I have seen some MSI gaming laptops with top end APU's and a 7970m under the hood... and the price is so attractive! I mean comparing that configuration to an Intel based one is like day and night. Curious if the performance is really that great in real world scenario to justify the paring of such components together.
Currently I am rocking a bit dated Asus multimedia laptop with an Intel 720qm and 5730m in it (still lovin it), but benchmarks suggest that the APU's processor and graphics power surpassed my config. Quite sad, yet I am happy to see AMD moving up.
