Wow, they are on par with a notoriously horrific architecture from nealy a decade ago.

Impressive.
Since they reached this level of performance using a MIPS chip emulating a x86 chip, then yeah, it's impressive - it means that it's feasible to run x86-only apps on the chip, and that native apps will run much faster.

The best Excavator released in 2015 was the A12-8800B Pro, a 2C4T chip with a 2.1GHz base and a 3.4GHz boost. (There were faster ones, including a quad-core desktop, but they weren't released in 2015.)

wow, wait until they perfect these and then dump them in the us--they'll kill off intel and amd like they did every other us leader of industry...
I agree; the US Tech industry gave the Reds all their IP for a quick buck. I will not feel sorry for them when it happens.

"Don't underestimate the power of the Dark Side." These buggers will steal and improve anything. Do not buy chinese owned electronics. They owe you nothing and report everything back to mother china.
