AMD's "Fusion" is On Track

Multi-chip modules not far off

More details have surfaced in relation to AMD's "Fusion" project, where they are working towards producing dual-chip modules. The Inquirer have found out that one of the dies will be made up of the main CPU cores, memory controller and Hypertransport logic, whilst another seperate die on the package will be the dedicated GPU.

It's also become apparent that Fusion's microprocessor chip will be brewed up out of AMD's own fabs whilst the GPU will be manufactured at Taiwanese foundry TSMC.

For full details head over to the Inquirer, or if you'd like to know more about the platform side of things, the Dailytech have covered that today.


THE AMD FUSION NOTION is slowly taking shape, with controlled leaks to interested parties, I am led to understand.

To get the big picture, it is necessary to understand what Fusion actually is. For a company that has openly said that Intel's products aren't true dual-core (Presler) and are not true quad-core (Kentsfield/Clovertown), Fusion will be the beginning of a new way of thinking at Chimpzilla. By copying Intel's moves, that is.
