Because AMD's new Z-series of APUs is designed for tablets, they're able to bake these new APUs into a tablet that is just 10mm thick.

AMD Z-60 APU will power tablet and hybrid PCs, uses just 4.5W at load

Something that isn't quite amazing compared to today's Core i7 systems powered up with a nice SSD, but it is a tablet that is chewing less than 5W, remember.
AMD's new Z-60 APU is able to run games that just aren't possible on today's tablets, where the company cited the ability to play a game such as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 at 1280x720 on medium detail at around 30 frames per second - not bad for an APU that chews under 5W of power.
