There is no tradeoff here.

IHVs will simply have 3 (dx, ogl, oglng) instead of 2 drivers.

They have more margins on GPUs, especially high end ones, they can absorb the cost increase better than an APU, where AMD has to play in the low end segment which is more price conscious.

I remember seeing moorefield losing in the Trex/Manhattan benchmarks, not in microbenches. But that's what I recall, could be wrong though.
