Tuesday, 4th January 2011 19:51 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


AMD has announced that the first PCs and laptops to contain its combined CPU and a GPU product, Fusion, are now available at retail.

The Fusion-based products with DX11 support are available from a variety of manufacturers, and include not only notebooks and desktops, but netbooks as well, making higher-end PC games possibly playable on the later (via BigDownload).

AMD is showing Fusion-based products running games from BioWare, Turbine, and Firaxis at CES this week.

    The name is misleading, these processors use neither nuclear nor cold fusion.

    the act or process of fusing; the state of being fused. REAL misleading.

    Ideally, this should cost less at retail since manufacturing costs/processes are lessened for combo encap/packaging.

    Dice should also be smaller and integrated, further cutting some costs.

    However, AMD should charge an arm and a leg for this …. marketing it as energy-efficient or something.
