Wonderful, but how does it stack up to the A10-6800K's HD8670D? Will it be on a chip that only costs $150 or will it be only on chips priced so far up the ladder that anyone looking for it will go with a discrete card?

look more at what is going on with Kaveri and the hUMA memory architecture, remember that for the vast majority of people out there the CPU has been more then good enough for years now, thats why they buy based on price, they don't know what a GPU is, but if word gets around that these new computers can game around as good as any console they are golden.

Consoles and comps may be different targets, but what you have to do to get your game to render fastest on the GCN architecture wont change much between the two. Since a large portion of PC games are being ported from the consoles this will only give AMD that much more of an advantage as the game devs will already very familiar with the hardware's quirks without having to be paid off for that to happen as you see with Nvidia "The Way It's Meant To Be Played" titles.
