    More than likely I will be ordering an A8-6600K setup when I wake up in the morning to become my new HTPC.

    Do any of those reviews have Dual Graphics as apart of their articles?

    Really want to know what the performance is like and what card the tied it in with.

    Basically a new stepping with slight better graphics. A minor refresh.

    6800K can be paired with Oland too

    Well, Haswell has higher IPC on legacy software, and is much faster then prev. gen. in graphics and when new instructions are in use. Richland... is just small clock bump. So... no! Not like Haswell.

    It was a tongue-in-cheek response.

    A little showstopper for some, seems just like with FX, not all CPUs overclock nicely.
    http://www.purepc.pl/procesory/test_...ania?page=0,13

    only 4600Mhz CPU and 1083Mhz iGPU stable, thats a big drop from over 5ghz for others.

    And another one

    http://pclab.pl/art53197-18.html

    4700Mhz CPU 1170Mhz iGPU .

    Seems like it has much variation just like Vishera core.
    And it still has trouble keeping up with Deneb/Thuban core :-/ .
    Overall looks like a good cpu, but its overpriced.

    SKYMTL, if you still have the test rig, are you able to do some Dual Graphics tests?

    Already in progress! Remember, HWC isn't my source of employment so I typically work on articles from 8PM to 2AM.....so sometimes articles take a bit longer.

    Unfortunately though, I just don't see much use in Dual Graphics though. You're basically spending $90 on a discrete card from three years ago and a premium for an APU. AMD is basically a generation behind in APU their graphics tech which means when Kaveri and GCN 2.0 are released very close to one another, the situation will be pretty much the same.

    To me, it comes down to price.

    For example, an FX-4300 + GTX 650 Ti = $249

    An AMD Richland A10-6800K (rough analog to an FX-4300) is $159 plus the $89 for an HD 6670 = $249

    The REALLY interesting metric is when both solutions are compared in games.

    If you factor in microstuttering and profile dependency, then yes. I would take the single-GPU solution any day of the week over dual graphics.

    A10-5800K in hybrid crossfire with an 7750! Is this real? Looks legit to me.

    Edit:

    And the part in bold is what I'm eager too see
