AMD Shows Off Next-Gen Llano Fushion APU

AMD’s been keeping the hype on their CPU/GPU hybrid for some time now, but we’re seeing near reality with a demo of its Llano Accelerated Processing Unit (APU). This is an all-in-one chip (prototype setup shown below), as demoed by the company, that is able to process three seperate compute-and-graphics-intensive workloads.

The Llano platform is also able to calculate value of Pi to 32 million decimal places, and decode HD video from a Blu-ray film. Sampling of these chips will hit desktops and laptops at some point in 2011. Head over here for a more detailed post on AMD’s blog, and take a look at their video below (right here) of course.
