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.

Especially if AMD/ATI decide to get off their butts and give us decent drivers in a timely and efficient manner before or shortly after the products are released.

Or, better yet, release the specs since

A.)they don't seem to be trying to shoot for fastest GPU with this product

B.) This is DIFFERENT, so maybe it'll lack a lot of the patent-laiden old code that they cite as a reason for holding on to the specs so very tightly....


We can hope? When I started on my ancient compaq with win95, I NEVER saw computers coming what they are now!
