AMD Talks up Fusion of CPU & GPU

AMD had an analyst’s day conference call today and DailyTech is reporting that one of the topics of discussion was the new Fusion processor. Many expect that AMD will debut the new Fusion processor in late 2008 or early 2009.

The Fusion will have both the CPU and GPU on the same die, but in different cores. DT says that the CPU will have access to its on cache and the GPU will have access to its own buffers.The GPU and CPU cores are joined by a crossbar and an integrated memory controller. Daily Tech quoted AMD as saying, "Fusion-based processors will be designed to provide step-function increases in performance-per-watt-per-dollar over today’s CPU-only architectures, and provide the best customer experience in a world increasingly reliant upon 3D graphics, digital media and high performance computing."
