Fusion GPU in CPU has a different clock - Page 2

post #11 of 13
I'm thinking that the GPU's shaders could be put to use as an amazing FPU... kinda like how they talk about the 8800 being such a processing powerhouse. The reason that it's running at a different speed is that they probably can't get the GPU to go 2+GHz-- this isn't "smart," it's expected.

What I want to know is why AMD thinks that this will be better than just plain ol' integrated. I mean, the GPU's on chipsets is more than enough for anyone that's not a gamer (heck, I use integrated and I am a gamer...GTS is coming in Wed though, hehe).

With that said, I don't think AMD would be wasting almost two years on developing new hardware (Fusion) that isn't significantly better than the existing (integrated).

This is going to be interesting though. Some questions would be....would every CPU have the same GPU, or can you get a lower clocked CPU with a high clocked GPU, and visa vera. I think there is *too* must customization that is necessary to meet everybody's needs, and it's going to be interesting how AMD plans to cater to the majority.

i think what they are trying to do is what people were speculating before
make CPU's 10 times faster,we all know GPU's are faster at proccessing then CPUs.....soo they are trying to make a SPU (super proccessing unit!!!!!!!!!1111oneoneoneone)
