Richland is here, in the form of the A10-6800K with a 4.1GHz base clock and 4.4GHz Turbo clock, support for DDR3-2133 and an improved GPU called the 8670D with 384 shaders and a 844MHz clock speed ... all for $142!  Computationally you can compare it to a Core i3 or a slower Core i5 but graphically this CPU is head and shoulders above the competition as you can see in X-Bit Labs' testing.  You really need to keep the price in mind, as it may not provide as much power as a Core-i5 it costs about half as much which can mean a lot to someone on a tight budget, especially when they can skip purchasing a discrete GPU altogether.

Make sure to check out Josh's reivew where he contrasts the last few generations of AMD chips.

"AMD decided to refresh their Socket FM2 platform and release a new generation of hybrid processors for it based on Richland design. This is exactly the one that earned the “Elite Performance APU Platform” title in the mobile segment."

AMD APUs are just fine, and cost much less for their performence, compaired to Intel's price gouge, as buyers better Haswell loads of cash to give to the Chip Pimps at Intel! AMD IGPUs mop the floor with Intel so called "pro" graphics! And Intel CPUs, well, unless they are paired with GPUs from AMD or Nivida, are useless for gaming! Intel is at best, just a bar back, compared to AMD's and Nivida's high end Bar bartenders, now drink that bitter highball, shillboy!
