I have received my 3656 i was so excited with the specs but did not know about the APU. Traditionally APUs have been paired with video cards in their class. After researching the 8800p APU, I thought well hey dell built a little power house. The APU when used in a Laptop is designed to operate at 15w to save battery up to 35 watts of power TDP and is capable of crossfire with 360M laptop discrete video card. I was disappointed, Dell has chosen to keep the TDP at 15w under utilizing APU and no Crossfire with R9 360 which would have boosted the video performance of the machine. To call this a Gamer Desktop is a joke. I did not expect XPS performance out of an AMD gaming computer. I did expect fully utilized hardware that was designed to work well together. What happened?
