    Thanks for this Matthew. I need to purchase at least one laptop by mid-July as I have been waiting to see what the Llano can offer. But until we get solid benching I'll take any article concerning Llano or Bulldozer with reservation (this is NOT directed at Matthew or TechSpot).

    I'm hoping this article is true when it comes to the graphics because I am not impressed with current mobile offerings other than discrete graphics which raises the price of a system considerably. A shame we have to wait for a native USB 3.0 controller.
     
  3. This is going to rock for tablets!

    With a 45W TDP, I'm not thinking so... This is definitely more of a laptop range CPU.

    I'm so going to wait for this before buying the new laptop I've been crying my friends about.
     
  6. Well, it includes GPU also, don't forget this.

    If that's supposed to help the hope for it being used it tablets (hard to tell with all the Guest comments blurring together)... Keep in mind that so does the Tegra 2, which is being used currently in tablets, and has a TDP 10 times less than this AMD entry. Not saying it wouldn't make a kick-*** tablet - just don't see it being lightweight with good battery life, 2 of the top criteria for tablet success these days.
