In the News This 24/7 Wall Street article displays three common media ailments: hyperbole, a love for top ten lists, and an obsession with December predictions for the coming year (which off course OSNews is obviously also falling victim to), and there are some predictable losers on this list (Blockbuster Video, anyone?). I thought it would be an interesting topic for OSNews because three of the companies/brands are quite familiar to us: Palm, Motorola, and Sun Microsystems.

Fusion might just change all that.

Intel already has the silicon ready for their CPU-GPU on a single package product. AMD is nowhere near releasing a product based on fusion yet.

Intel can't get larrabee to work, I don't have a lot of faith in their CPU-GPU product. It'll end up being almost as crappy as their current products, while AMD knows how to make a good GPU.

With their GMA (and associated drivers, in the GMA500 case)? Unless they get serious about GPGPU and video offloading (the GMA4500HD uses way too much CPU for the task, FI), I won't hold my breath. Getting one out first is fine for hype, but I don't trust Intel to actually make it good, as well, unlike the CPU it will sit next to.
