Your complaints I agree with, but we were discussing the memory part, so I don't get your jump to everything else suddenly.
Now, even if we are looking at mobile parts, the AMD A10-5745m and A10-4655m are both 25w parts. AMD always overstates their TDP requirements as they go for theoretical maximum.
Your point is moot.

According to that you see increasingly diminishing returns as the memory clocks increase to the point where a 12% clock increase results in a 3% to 6% fps change for the A10-5800K, whereas going from ddr-1333 to 1600 followed bandwidth almost exactly.
Assuming a similar core design, I would expect similar diminishing returns.
As for cost, I'm not going to argue over much other than to say I'd expect the 4850HQ (http://www.anandtech.com/show/6993/i...50hq-tested/19) to perform very nearly the same as the $200 more 4950HQ since the gpu clocks are identical and the cpu clocks only differ by 100MHz. That's a much better proposition, but, as you say, you very well might be able to find a cheaper system but it's openCL seems quite a bit better than even the nvidia 640 (http://www.anandtech.com/show/6993/i...50hq-tested/17).
Looks like you already found the cheaper iris pro, and someone also mentioned the power issue that discrete cards can't ever match.

And those parts are both slower. Like i said, it's a trade off based on what is most important to you.Now, even if we are looking at mobile parts, the AMD A10-5745m and A10-4655m are both 25w parts. AMD always overstates their TDP requirements as they go for theoretical maximum.
What point? That different people value different features?Your point is moot.
