So much power stuffed into a little package. You'd never believe this was possible 10 years ago.

Thats pretty good, at that power of a on Die GPU, thats going to blow the mid range market wide open. Kinda anxious for this chip to see if the CPU is up to par to match the built in GPU.

Equivalent to a 7750? Talk about awesome. I am kind of pissed off because this thing is getting close to surpassing my laptops GPU performance on BF4 xD!

But remember that while Richland has over 856GFLOPs, it is based on the VLIW architecture which is very hard to untap all that compute performance due to the superscalar nature of that. That explains why for example, the HD 7870 is able to match and outperform the HD 6970 while having less theorical compute performance and less core processors.
