Fusion might be AMD's big CES announcement, but the semiconductor manufacturer is also taking the time to refresh its mobile graphics range by launching its second-generation AMD Radeon HD 6000M series.

The top-to-bottom range, covering everything from the high-end HD 6900M to the entry-level 6300M, is DX11-capable and provides support for AMD's bevy of multimedia technologies - including Eyefinity for simplified multi-display configurations, AMD HD3D for watching stereoscopic video or converting 2D to 3D, and EyeSpeed, a new name for various hardware-acceleration capabilities.

At the top of the range, the new enthusiast-orientated AMD Radeon HD 6900M will feature a core clocked at up to 680MHz, 960 stream processors and a GDDR5 frame buffer. Providing 1.3 TeraFLOPS of processing power, the chip becomes one of AMD's fastest mobile GPUs to date and is certain to pick up numerous high-end design wins.

AMD claims its "feature-rich line" will enable "a superior visual computing experience in virtually every segment", but whilst its feature list is extensive, there's no mention (yet) of a graphics switching technology that's able to match the efficiency of NVIDIA's Optimus.

Detailed specifications for all Radeon HD 6000M-series GPUs can be found at AMD.com, and you check out a high-octane promo clip below.

lol at ‘EyeSpeed’ :lol:

tbh the new Fusion processors and Core 2nd gens are far more interesting to me than new high end notebook graphics: good cpu, capable gpu and long battery life ftw. 2 hour battery life is so 5 years ago :)
I agree that the AMD equivalent of Optimus is increasingly looking like an urgent requirement.
