AMD announced plans to release a new product that would combine both a CPU and a GPU in one. The product was named, not surprisingly, Fusion. After years of waiting, AMD announced today that the first Fusion-based PCs (desktops, notebooks and especially netbooks) are now available from a variety of PC makers.
The graphics core in the Fusion processor supports DirectX 11 graphics. The Fusion is expected to be a big contender in the netbook PC business which may mean that more high end PC games may actually be playable on netbooks. AMD will be showing off PCs with Fusion at this week's Consumer Electronics show and a number of game developers and publishers will be showing off games running on Fusion including BioWare, Firaxis, Turbine and more.
