AMD's plan to integrate the CPU and GPU on to one die appears to be on track for 2011, judging by a demonstration given by Rick Bergman, senior vice president of the AMD products group, to assembled press at COMPUTEX 2010.

Justifying the need for silicon integration, which AMD dubs Accelerated Processing Unit, Bergman said: “This explosion in multimedia requires new applications and new ways to manage and manipulate data. Low resolution video needs to be up-scaled for larger screens, HD video must be shrunk for smart phones, and home movies need to be stabilized and cleaned up for more enjoyable viewing. When AMD formally launches the AMD Fusion family of APUs, scheduled for the first half of in 2011, we expect the PC experience to evolve dramatically.”

AMD is said to be sampling key customers right now, but it gave a peek into low-power APU performance by running a 30-second section of Aliens vs. Predator in DX11 mode.



Fusion APUs will arrive in the form of the 32nm "Llano" part for desktops and a 40nm "Ontario" for notebooks. If this very early-silicon sample is indicative of APU performance, AMD appears to be on the right track. Your thoughts?

The IGP looks quite decent it seems!
Want some better news? It's Ontario, not Llano. :drool:

I would like to nominate one of myself as the said customers (please; pretty please!?).

Incidentally, what game is this. It looked as if the player's weapons went cloaked. What games other than the one you can get into for saying it, these days, allows you to go cloaked?
