||GPU Processing goes mainstream
For years, GPU processing (the use of high performance video cards for general purpose computing) has been the preserve of academic and niche commercial research. As the tools have improved, the march towards this technology has become more pronounced.
||Is AMD's Fusion Processor a Performance Game Changer?
AMD has recently launched the Fusion' processors incorporate a graphics card (GPU) and microprocessor (CPU) on a single low power chip.
These Accelerated Processing Units (APUs) utilise a single-die design that combines multi-core CPU (x86) the graphics and parallel processing engine. They also include a high-speed bus that transmits data across processor cores.
