Is there anything very surprising about the benchmark? The mobile APU does quite well.

But then
a) Benchmarks are just benchmarks and can be misleading (type of benchmark vs. reality, compiler options and so on)
b) for a laptop one should always use a mobile APU that is meant for mobile -> power consumption / power saving functions, max. heat evolving etc.
The few examples of "desktop replacements" did not work out so well in the past.

Carrizo is just around the corner so why use the older mobile APU?
