Submission + - AMD's first Fusion APU benchmarked->

crookedvulture writes: AMD's Fusion-based processors have always looked good on paper. Combining CPU and GPU elements on a single die makes sense, especially within the context of affordable ultraportable notebooks targeted by the company's Brazos platform. Now that the first Brazos benchmarks are out, we finally have an idea of how this CPU/GPU hybrid might perform in the real world. The performance of AMD's new Bobcat CPU core matches that of Intel's latest CULV 2010 processors, and the integrated Radeon graphics core is a revelation when compared with competing offerings. AMD easily has the best balance of processing and graphics horsepower in this segment, which certainly bodes well for other Fusion-based APUs.
