They were trying to have an even playing field (around $120).
That is a fair enough argument. I don't see a problem with sticking to a price range.
That brings up a new issue though; For less
than $120, you could get:
Yes, in heavily-threaded stuff, the AMD's "four" threads will beat the Intel's two, but at the super-budget end desktop Trinity is aimed at, the G620 is plenty fast enough for what casual users need - they don't tend to multitask VM's and compile things all day, because that is what the $300 chips are for.
In gaming (especially at the 1080p resolution most people will be running a television or cheap 23" monitor at) the HD6670 on GDDR5 will tear the Trinity's IGP to pieces and then defacate on the remains.
It's not even a remotely fair contest.
