PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Several Android tablets running on Intel Clover Trail+ Atom processors broke cover at Computex Taiwan. Intel's dual-core, 1.6GHz Atom Z5260 is fueling a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 tablet, as well as Asus's 6-inch Fonepad Note and 10-inch MemoPad FHD10 tablets, while Asus also unveiled a hybrid 11.6-inch Transformer Book Trio, combining an Android slate based on a 2GHz dual-core Atom Z2580 with a keyboard dock running Windows 8 on an Intel Haswell processor."

AMD doesn't have to have the best integer performance if they are going to be putting an HD7750 on the same die as their steamroller cores and is adding GDDR5 to the system memory pool.

Haswell Iris 5200 integrated GPU outperforms A10-5800k (HD7660) discrete card at 1/2 of power.
i7-4950HQ has 128MB of EDRAM L4 cache on package.

Apparently allowing you to have both DDR3 and GDDR5 sticks installed on the same mobo with the CPU ad GPU being able to use both simultaneously.

GDDR5 memory is not "sticks" - it is soldered on PCB. Also you can't use both at the same time.

Once the new consoles are out the game devs aren't going to be looking to optimize much at all for Nvidia hardware

Do you understand that consoles and PCs are different optimization targets?

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.
