Oh snap, so it decides to work now...


Still, this sounds quite interesting to say the least.

Wow.... finally, no more "I've got better GPU than you" flame wars. :xp:

This looks good, but I have a feeling its going to cost a ton...

lolz...stinger - you called have called this thread "AMD STRIKES BACK" :D

I was expecting some juicy news from AMD after intels showponying about conroe.

at last, after all the scuttlebutt, the AMD/ATI CnGPU gets a name = Fusion

so can it officially be said that graphics cards are a thing of the past ???

what will poor nvidia do :( :p

I'd like to know about the capabilities of fusion chips, and how they rate against existing hardware... as Ive said elsewhere : interesting times ahead in the compy world :)

I highly recommend people sit and ride the wave and see how things turn out :)
I'd say its going to be really difficult to future proof a machine greater than 12 moths...

My 2 cents: the Fusion processor will be great for run-of-the-mill PC's used for web browsing and basic business apps but for anybody that wants to use any heavy-duty graphics (e.g. gaming, video editing) they're still going to need a high-end video card. If this combination of CPU and GPU is going to rival systems with CPU's and GPU cards it's going to take at least 5 years of additional development to get there.
