Phoronix: AMD A8-3850 With Radeon HD 6550D
Last month AMD officially launched the A-Series "Llano" Fusion APUs to much fan-fare with significantly better computational and graphics performance over the E-Series Fusion APUs and all around the new hardware being a compelling solution. On launch-day we delivered AMD A8-3500M benchmarks as we managed to procure remote access to one of the AMD Llano systems from a third-party, and we also delivered benchmarks of the Radeon HD 6620G that are found on that APU. We have now finally been sent over a Llano APU and motherboard from AMD so we are able to conduct our own set of in-depth Llano Linux tests. In this review we are examining the Radeon HD 6550D graphics capabilities on the AMD A8-3850 APU.
It depends on the price and time of shipment
i asked for price/performance, but i think this kind of CPU+GPU processors are more for portable devices as netbooks - not as cheap as ATOM, but a litle more expensive and far better performance - for a near future - this computer world is fast and ATOM is aged. But i missed the 100W MY MISTAKE.

And of course as a nextgen processor is really much faster than an ATOM, but Price / performance versus ATOM and desktop computers - being in the middle of both markets I hope - would be good, in my opinion too.
I would like a score as futuremark for phoronix test suite with a 100 or 1000 base on a known model as a mac mini or similar to really compare at one sight performance between computers.
