    Awesome early preview. Now I was wondering if the wonderful folks at Phoronix would be able to test the A10-5800k in a crossfire config using the latest Catalyst drivers? Would be really nice to see. Hint Hint.. PLEASE

    If AMD will bankrupt, Intel Core i3 will cost at least $500.

    Why not crossfire on an Atom board? That would make as much sense as your own suggestion.
    These are low-budget CPU, there's no use in trying to put it any other way.

    Agreed. Crossfire doesn't make tons of sense, but a PRIME setup might. Plug the monitor into the onboard graphics output, and use a dedicated card as a render slave whenever you need performance. When you don't need the performance, shut down the dedicated card completely.

    The CPU speed is largely irrelevant to me, and to a lot of people I think these days. IMO, for home desktops we've been at a "good enough" level for years now. A few cores and a few gigahertz will do it.
    Agreed! I want to see this in SFF. Will look delicious .

    Congratulations!!!!

    You've just won the 'Epitome of ignorance' award.

    If you are interested in seeing the laughing stock, find a mirror. YOU'RE IT. One who is so worried about the "cool factor" of CPUs that you make CPU vendors a personal issue.

    Personally, I'm quite happy with AMD chips, and have been burned a few times by Intel. If I need more performance, I'll just buy more chips. It'll still cost me less.

    These CPUS don't run like atoms, the top end has a fairly nice bite to it. It would make sense to have both cards doing work in GPU bound games, obviously with the added advantage of turning one off when it doesn't need the power.

    Nobody will look to spend $50-100 less for the CPU AND run a crossfire setup at the same time. It doesn't make sense. The top end of these CPUs stops about where the low end of Sandy Bridge starts.
    You're curious about the setup, I can accept that. But I just don't buy AMD's talk that CPU power has ceased to matter right where they started failing to compete.

    Only an Intel idiot would post any Anandtech bentmarks.

    And who's says they are quitting the desktop market?
