Saw that earlier. Good god, I want one of those! Llano is a monster... and that monster consumes less power than Intel's solution!!!

I'm sold. I hate that they're still 6 months out from being on the market though.

Ok AMD, you got my attention, again. I vowed to never use you again after you started lagging behind Intel with your CPU's. I got a few questions for you AMD:
  • What is your cost going to be? Are you still going to keep your cost down? Or are you going to go the way of Intel and screw your customer with your prices?
  • How hot are these chips going to run? Do I need to install a sprinkler system in my computer room because of the heat you're going to produce?
  • Your YouTube video was great....but how is it in comparison to real games that we (consumers) will be playing (ie Crysis2, BFBC3, etc.)?
  • Are you going to abandon the consumers again?

Until I get satisfied answers, I will stick with what I have already.

The YouTube video was about AMD Fusion APU comparing the AMD Llano A8-3510MX against Intel Core i7-2630QM, both are notebook processors with integrated GPU, I doubt they will be able to play Crysis2.

I believe AMD has few existing desktop CPU that should have no problem to play Crysis2 with good Graphic Card. Maybe the soon coming Bulldozer might even improve on that.

Anyway I see you have very nice set up, which should not need any upgrade to play Crysis2, so AMD is out of luck.
