AMD Unveils Fusion APU at Computex

Combing a GPU and a CPU into one device has been something that both Intel and AMD have been working towards for a long time. The idea is that by combing the CPU and the GPUY you can get a device, called an APU, which can do both functions, save space on the board of the computer, and reduce power consumption.

AMD showed a demo of the Fusion APU that showed the device accelerating Internet Explorer 9 and DirectX 11 rendering and special effects. The Fusion APU is capable of running HD video and allowing a users apps to play just as they would with a separate CPUY and GPU.

The fusion APU will mostly find a home in netbooks and other notebook and desktop systems that use integrated graphics today. This will not be an option for an enthusiast system since the Fusion APU won’t offer the level of performance ended in demanding video games. AMD offered no details on when the Fusion APU would come to market or how much it might cost.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
