Thats true, but IMO they are quite hard to compare in the first place. AMD is only focusing on full Windows 8 tablets, with the main selling point of Temash being DirectX 11.1 support and compatiblity with most PC games. Meanwhile, ARM GPUs are at best running Windows RT and on DirectX 10 feature level.
The only competition on that front would be Clover Trail+, if Intel would fix their drivers, and perhaps Haswell based low-TDP Pentiums (if the price is right).
I agree though, that running PC games on tablets seems a lot less useful than AMD's marketing claims. In tablet mode one would be heavily constrainted by touch screen controls. Perhaps you could play less demanding Adventure and Strategy games, that only require mouse, but that's it. In docked mode, with mouse, one could just as well use a laptop instead, getting a lot more performance in the process. The Turbo Dock feature helps, but I still think it's more useful for snappier content creation (e.g. Word), than even any half-serious gaming.
Nevertheless, it seems to be their main marketing point and that makes comparison difficult (which again is probably the reason for said marketing).
