This is gives me hope for the mobile platform (I'm hoping to buy an MBP after the next update to IB). Lower TDP lappy quads are never a bad thing.
Ah, I thought you were. I was seriously on the edge of my chair(laughing) by the 5th post or so because people were like "z0mfGGggZZ 6 core unlocked at 5w TDP@@@@ QFT AMD###"

But yeah, less power consumption on the mobile platform is always a plus, I'm liking where this is headed.

The gains IB has made in terms of IGP are also pretty solid, and although I don't give a flying shit about IGP (me and IGP have a blood feud), it's good that they're giving it some attention. Better IGP performance + lower power usage? Yes plz. More focus on laptop GPU performance the better.

Too bad AMD isn't steppin' up their game. Hopefully the next stepping on Bulldozer goes clutch (re-read that last sentence, I made a pun).

AMMAGAWD!!!!!

Though it's only valid next Friday and Saturday..... Sh.t man I was seriously about to buy my 25k, I guess I can wait; though with that deal, you have to purchase another pc part... Guess I can still order my board and just have it sit around for a few days...

Hmm... 25K @ Microcenter, $179.99 - price match @ ncix = gimmie.

26K Deal @ Compusa, $219.99 + I'd have to buy something else to get that price. If it's an online deal though, all I need is the product page, + ncix price match = PROFIT.

I know they're essentially the same chip, but, dat price.

Anyone know if ncix charges tax? I don't live in California.(Don't be a smartass and link me to google, i've searched.)

Lol, punny. I'm hoping AMD does a bit more to their architecture, they keep having good ideas, just executed in a non-efficient manner.

As far as IGP's go, I'm not much for gaming on laptops, though if it can run my fix of a multiplayer fps on med settings, i'm happy (and most sub $800 laptops can do that now).

I will slap a bitch and their mother.

I dunno then. I can get a 25k guaranteed for 179.99+anything extra that might be charged, versus waiting another week.

F..kin 'ell, always decisions...
