AMD’s APU project has really progressed over the past year. Ideally we would like an APU to be a 50/50 distribution of CPU and GPU Power. AMD’s upcoming Kaveri APU is the closest thing to it with 47% of it being made up of the GPU. Below you can see a comparison between AMD’s Kaveri and Intel’s Sandy Bridge, Ivy Bridge and Haswell architecture.
