ok, full disclosure: I did product management work in the pc patch for over a decade, and I must say AMD royally muffed this introduction, and committed crime in the product model naming conventions used. essentially what is now called an A6 is, cpu wise, half what it was [cores] though I guess their point is on a per-core basis it is superior.
However, letting OEM's build lowball systems as the FIRST introduction of your last great hope for catching intel ultrabook models, and having uncontrolled benchmarks seep like sewage through the internet is a travesty.
there is a tiny sliver of hope in the charts in this post: Ivy Bridge Vs Trinity benchmarks are in: Intel CPU wins, AMD GPU and battery win - MacRumors Forums
the anecdotal evidence from gamers posting their early experience is at best a shrug... they are not seeing anything like a doubling of frame rate or any such "Wow-factor" leap. graphics wise, the lineup is stronger than previous shared-mem graphics, but not by a huge amount
