AMD Fusion - CPU & GPU Integration

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.

Note from the Nerd: Well, this is certainly an interesting development in the design of "PUs" (processing units). The idea has probably been around for a while of integrating the CPU and the GPU, but of course, AMD always leads inovation. I can't wait to see these new Fusion Processors, Intel... watch out.
