AMD Phil Hester, AMD's chief technology officer, stopped by the Hot Chips conference here at Stanford University on Tuesday to talk a little more about Fusion, AMD's plan to integrate a graphics processor and PC processor onto the same chip. By the time the chip is ready around 2009, Hester thinks the growing explosion of video and 3D graphics on PCs these days will require an affordable chip that still delivers great graphics performance.

Wonder what this'll mean for people who tend to go through 2 to 3 video cards per CPU upgrade?

Be interesting to see the results non the less.

It'll mean nothing. It means a lot to the guy in the office who may save $100 on each PC, or who wants to make a lower power HTPC, etc., but maybe needs features or performance of a low-end card right now (or the guy who's kid wants to get games from the dollar store to hose his Windows install... ;) ). Imagine not that AMD can replace a $300 video card with this move, but that they can replace a $100 card with it.
