AMD Compares Llano and Sandy Bridge in Video

Sandy Bridge is the new big dog in the consumer computing processor space – or is it? In terms of certain benchmarks, it is, but AMD feels that graphics have a big part to play too. With software supporting more GPU acceleration, there's certainly a valid point.

AMD has just released a video showing its Llano APU system going head to head against an Intel Sandy Bridge CPU. We know which side has the better graphics part integrated, but how does that translate into real-world performance? This is what AMD is trying to show everyone, but keep in mind that these are specific conditions.
