Fudzilla is reporting that AMD will be demonstrating It’s AMD Fusion technology early next month, at the IFA consumer electronics tradeshow in Berlin. IFA Berlin 2010 will take place from September 3rd – September 8th.
Fusion is a response to Intel’s work to integrate CPUs and graphics processors onto one chip, the “System-on-Chip” that has been talked about. AMD refers to it as “APU” which stands for “Accelerated Processing Unit” and they could be nearing production.
AMD Fusion information:
– 40nm, 64-bit, Virtualization support, SSE3 support
– AMD and ATI architecture – CPU + GPU
– Expected sometime in 2011, maybe in production late 2010.
– Maybe code-named Ontario
– Not just for netbooks – also tablets, other devices
– May have integrated DirectX 11 support
– DDR3 Memory
Fudzilla also reports that AMD will be showing HD netbooks with “AMD Vision” which is, in my view, a fancy way of AMD laying out the market segments based on what you plan on doing with them. You can read more about AMD Vision at AMD.com.
