Either AMD has finally made their peace with the concept of netbooks, or they've finally admitted to themselves that it's useless to fight a trend. The company is about to launch a new “Fusion” line of chips, designed to work specifically in netbooks. These new chips are expected to launch at some point in 2011.

Netbooked reports (via Hardware Central) that these new netbook-based chips will consume about 10-15 watts of power (about 1/3rd of what they draw now) and will be designed for 10”-12” netbooks. There will be “good integrated graphics performance” that will supposedly make Ion “unnecessary”.

That last claim should be taken with a big honkin' grain of salt. If AMD can release a netbook chip with integrated graphics that allow close to the same level of performance we see out of Ion netbooks, they'll have a very impressive product on their hands. I'll believe it when I see it.
