Thursday, November 16, 2006
AMD has given us some more information about Fusion, albeit still a little vague on specifics as to exactly how a stream processing on the GPU would be leveraged. But if you thought CPU and GPU integration onto one die was just about low end computers, AMD is painting a different picture. CPUs with high powered stream processors onboard that utilize GPU power is the future that AMD sees.
