Looking at it from the perspective of a "small, dual-issue [low-power]" core, this is very impressive.
Looking at it from the perspective of "new hardware from AMD", particularly with respect to this processor's inclusion in the new game consoles, these numbers are a little disappointing -- although not at all unexpected. Would have liked to have seen Kaveri in the new consoles. ┐(´∀｀)┌
