Or maybe it's a different ES, and everything is working fine. Who knows lol I'm going half-mad at these leaks.
It will be interesting to see the actual clockspeeds of the A8 CPUs at launch. If they are comparable to the Athlon II X4 and Phenom II X4 there will be a decent performance boost. AFAIK,Turbo Core for lightly threaded applications maybe quite high.

AFAIK,the GPU supports OpenCL.
