Over the past few years AMD has invested most of their efforts into their APU line. This has paid off for them in the way of performance improvements every launch and even more importantly this focus helped them score all three of this generations gaming consoles. Considering how many of the PC games that we play today are ports from those consoles AMD is in a great position to benefit from all of the fine tuning done on their console hardware. They recently introduced their Kaveri APUs and after spending some time making changes to our CPU test suite and retesting some of the competition I finally have the chance to sit down and talk about how their latest APU performs both from a compute side of things as well as the performance of the integrated graphics processor.

After redoing our CPU test suite and doing a lot of retesting it took a lot longer than normal to get our Kaveri review out for everyone. Was it worth the wait? Well it won't be for everyone, but if you want the fastest integrated graphics you can possibly get, this might just be for you.
