Over at CES, AMD has taken the wraps off a new class of APU or Accelerated Processing Unit.

The Fusion family of APUs incorporate both a multi-core processor and discrete DX11 graphics solution in a single unit, and a parallel processing engine, plus HD video acceleration block, running on a high-speed bus.

Tablets and laptops are expected to arrive this quarter using the new technology, and boasting stutter-free HD video playback, DX11 capable graphics, and all-day battery life, so AMD claims.

Rick Bergman, Senior VP and General Manager, AMD Products Group, enthused: “We believe that AMD Fusion processors are, quite simply, the greatest advancement in processing since the introduction of the x86 architecture more than forty years ago.”

“In one major step, we enable users to experience HD everywhere as well as personal supercomputing capabilities in notebooks that can deliver all-day battery life.”

AMD lists the following manufacturers as expected to announce plans for Fusion APU systems in the near future: Acer, Asus, Dell, Fujitsu, HP, Lenovo, MSI, Samsung, Sony and Toshiba. The company notes that these offerings will carry “mainstream” price tags.
