Maybe someone should remind AMD that Sandy Bridge launches in a week. There is no way that Fusion will beat that to market, so all their hype about Intel needing to emulate them but there not being time is pretty ironic.

Because SB is fighting for the same consumers ranges...

The implication is that you can have your cake and eat it. You rarely see ugly fat models advertising things because companies want to associate the products with beauty, youth and vitality, and yes that even counts for pc products.

I doubt Sandy Bridge will be able to compete with AMD Fusion, though. The very name, "Sandy Bridge" sounds lame (unlike for example "Nehalem" which sounded quite cool). AMD Fusion sounds badass. Heck, even VIA CoreFusion sounds cooler than "Sandy Bridge" (dumbest name ever for a processor).

The name of a product is important when marketing it. That, and the fact that AMD Fusion will have superior performance over Sandy Bridge (Intel just doesn't know graphics like AMD after the purchase of ATI), and knowing AMD, they always offer great performance at a lower price. So Intel is going to have it tough this time around, especially after agreeing in court and everything that they no longer can bribe retailers to favour Intel over AMD.

I thought Sandy Bridge, Nehalem, etc. were just codenames not used in any actual marketing?

It is, but the code names are part of the marketing. "Kinect" was known and hyped as Project Natal for quite some time before it got the lamest name ever for a product.

AMD has been hyping its APUs as "Fusion" for some time now (and Fusion does sound cooler than "Sandy Bridge"). Bobcat and Bulldozer sound a bit stupid, though.

Regardless of all that, Intel has been taking AMD's lead now ever since AMD64 and it's no different with APU: Intel is following AMD's standards. The AMD era will be fair competition:

http://www.amd.com/us/aboutamd/corpo...mpetition.aspx

And it's questionable if Intel can compete with AMD when it's fair and open competition. Just look at Microsoft's IE browser; it no longer is as dominant as it used to be once Firefox and other browsers were given a fair chance to compete.

Too much hype. Their APU is equivalent of HD 5450 or 5550 at its best.

I doubt anyone can play MW2 or BlackOps with them at high details.

I love AMD/ATI but Sandy Bridge IGP is no worse than AMD Fusion APUs. They should bring something to destroy crappy Intel IGP yet all AMD do is focusing on power/heat stuff.

If they somehow manage to integrate a 5750 level of GPU into their processors then it would change everything.

AMD Fusion will eventually feature APUs with graphics as powerful as the HD6990 and beyond that, but right now, AMD is focused on the low power/heat market, obviously, because AMD needs to catch up with Intel in the Atom/netbook market. But once AMD has destroyd Intel's Atom, AMD Fusion will feature way more powerful graphics.

And besides, the Evergreen series all have excellent graphics cards. I mean, the cheapest budget Evergreen is even more powerful than the Xenos GPU in the Xbox 360.

Unless Intel buys up nVidia, Intel won't stand a chance against AMD Fusion, and neither will nVidia for that matter (I predict nVidia will buy up VIA for the x86-64 license).

I dont think people expect the first APUs to be able to play at HIGH.

I'll be glad to have a laptop to even play latest games in Native resolution at low settings.

Played L4D SC2 on a HD 3200. Even played World in COnflict on a 8400M G which is weaker than a HD3200.
