    I think when listing the specs for laptops, TDP for graphic cards should be listed to, as when you have an APU (like this time) it looks bad (65W compared to 45W).On the other hand,other laptops have GPU card that can have even higher TDP. So if you take both in to the account, APU TDP wins over combined TDPs of CPU+GPU in other laptops. And that usually means longer battery life. Kind of important for these devices.
    The more you live, less you die. More you play, more you die. Isn't it great.

    This isn't quite an APU. This has a seperate CPU and GPU that are packaged on a custom interconnect. My understanding is that Intel ordered a custom GPU from AMD to package alongside their CPUs.

    Hexus, you have the Load CPU Temp and Load GPU Temp graphs wrong on page 10. Either the labels are wrong or the wrong bars are coloured orange.

    In its primary function, it is an APU. Of course,it can not be one chip as AMD would had to give Vega blueprint to Intel or vica versa.So no, its not like AMD APU's are,but it gives you the same functionality: cpu and gpu in one package using only one socket. Its TDP is based on both its cpu and gpu, so that was my reasoning.
