    AMD to bring the CPU and GPU together with AMD Fusion

    At Computex this week, AMD is offering the first-ever public demonstration of AMD Fusion technology. AMD Fusion represents AMD’s effort to combine the CPU and GPU onto a single die – called an Accelerated Processing Unit (APU). The idea is that a single die or chip could efficiently deliver popular (and demanding) consumer experiences like playing a DirectX 11 game to HD video playback. AMD Fusion represents what AMD believes to be a major shift in processor architecture and capabilities.

    You can watch the video of the demonstration of AMD Fusion technology here at AMD’s USTREAM Channel.

    The AMD Fusion family of APUs are expected to launch in the first half of 2011.

    Steven Guggenheimer, Corporate Vice President of the OEM Division here at Microsoft, joined AMD on stage at their press conference at Computex for the demonstration of AMD Fusion and how it enriches the visual experience of many Microsoft products. Guggenheimer highlights our belief that AMD Fusion APUs combined with Windows 7 and DirectX 11 (and DirectCompute) can enable developers to create some incredible consumer experiences with their applications.

    This will be an interesting space to watch in 2011!

    Windows Vista Home Premium x86 (32bit) but soon to be Windows 7 Ultimate x86

    Very nice but I would expect a larger price tag with it though
