AMD's new Fusion APU purports to be a solid all round performer thanks to its pukka out-of-order architecture. So how does it stack up against a range of well known CPUs?

One of the more intriguing comparisons is with the Intel Celeron SU2300. That's a low voltage dual-core Intel Core 2 class processor.

It's also worth noting just how much more performance comes with the step up to a cheapo dual-core processor like AMD's own Athlon II X2 250.

As for a proper quad like the Intel Core i7 860, much less one of Intel's new Sandy Bridge chips, it's an ugly comparison.
