AMD "The 'Llano' processor that AMD described today in an ISSCC session is not a CPU, and it's not a GPU - instead, it's a hybrid design that the chipmaker is calling an 'application processor unit', or APU. Whatever you call it, it could well give Intel a run for its money in the laptop market, by combining a full DX11-compatible GPU with four out-of-order CPU cores on a single, 32nm processor die."

Although, I thought the embedded ATI GPUs used completely different drivers...

Most of the embedded ones actually work just fine with the desktop drivers if you just use modified .inf files. Like f.ex. on my laptop the original driver was years and years out-of-date so I went ahead and downloaded the slightly modified Omega driver. Worked like a dream.

I don't mean embedded as in laptop, I mean embedded as in embedded - cell phones, set top boxes, and the like.

This is based on the ATI Imageon, which has almost nothing to do with the Radeon line, if not absolutely nothing to do with it.
