Graphics Benchmarks: 3DMark
Since the Core i5-2450M isn’t capable of DirectX 11, we’re forced to shift down to 3DMark Vantage:
In this older metric, we see the A10-4600M soundly beating its competition, including the discrete Radeon HD 6630M. The Core i5-2450M’s integrated graphics takes a distant last-place finish, though its processing cores still appear superior.
Again, we aren’t able to include the Core i5-2450M in our 3DMark 11 results, since the test requires DirectX 11 support. Nevertheless, we’d like to see how Llano fares against Trinity. As expected, the A8-3500M’s integrated 6620G is left in the dust, and the A10-4600M’s on-die Radeon HD 7660G even bests the discrete 6630M.
BTW, Charlie @ SemiAccurate is not an AMD fanbois IME. He just calls it like it is. Reality bites sometimes be it Nvidia, AMD or Intel's problems. Denial never changes reality. It is what it is.
A10-4600M laptops will be int eh $600-$700 neighborhood, and we're still waiting for Ivy bridge Core i5 to arrive in this price range.
We go over this. We also talk about how we'll do a follow up as soon as an appropriate product is available.
You need to read for it to make sense.
In a related question, does Trinity's details and specs lead to any conclusions about what Piledriver desktop processors will be like?
