I'm not talking about recommendation mind you. I'm talking about the hierarchy chart. And APUs is better than what you think and it has its own market but i'm not going to argue with you here. That's not the point anyway.revanchrist :More Kaveri desktop models including A8-7600 will be released in the upcoming months yet there is not a single Kaveri APU featured in this so-called Hierarchy Chart. Meh.
the two currently-available kaveri apus have too high price to be recommended. a10 7850k is $170 while fx6300 and fx8320 both undercut 7850k. apus never make it to recommendations because the prices are always higher than cpus e.g. athlons and cheaper fx cpus.
Perhaps the new ones utilize the "improved" Haswell-refresh TIM?Intel also introduces two processors that, as far as the spec sheets go, are practically identical to their predecessors...we're not sure what to make of this.
