I don't know if it's a "shock" for you or not, but it's a fact that these APUs bring competitive CPU performance and GPU performance that just blows Intel's (that is, the only option we've had for years) out of the water. A bunch of games that are unplayable on Intel's offerings can now be run with perfectly acceptable and even outright good performance, not to mention other applications. Having that sort of acceptable GPU performance paired with a decent CPU for a low price is perfect for a lot of people, the fact that it struggles with fairly demanding games at 1080p or that it doesn't beat old low end GPUs is irrelevant.Wow, it is faster than intel igpu. What a shock. It probably is still slower than my ancient low end system with a SB i5 and a HD7770. Not to mention 7 out of the 28 games fall below what is generally considered unplayable, including some very popular older games like W3 and ROTR, as well as Fallout 3 which I did not include as unplayable, but would be a very bad experience with a 19 FPS min.
Yeah, some people were hoping for more and, honestly, should have had more realistic expectations, but this is undeniably an excellent, irreplaceable product for its price bracket.
