AMD Talks GPGPU and "Fusion"

Bright future ahead afterall?!

| Posted: Jul 18, 2007 2:08 am

Unfortunately we haven't seen much in the way of positive signs for AMD's future recently, so it's great to see that even though they've been experiencing such a rough ride lately they're still keeping their chin up and pushing ahead to bigger and better things, namely their "Fusion" project (focusing on the integration of GPGPU technology).

 

HWUpgrade have managed to arrange an interview with AMD's Giuseppe Amato who is the Technical Director of Sales & Marketing EMEA, and he sheds some light on the structure of AMD's upcoming Fusion processors.

 

The Dailytech also comment on the interview here.

 


In the interview, Amato sheds some more light on the structure of AMD's upcoming Fusion processors. A misconception that Amato notes is that Fusion processors will not only be available in single-chip flavors, but also mutli-chip formats. Two Fusion processors linked together would allow for parallel GPUs. He says that AMD has still not solidified the future plans of Fusion yet, but indicates it would be very likely to see a Fusion processor with a GPU and CPU connected through a CrossFire-like interface -- and have a total TDP of less than 120 Watts.
