Heterogeneous AMD Fusion Llano CPU

AMD released the Fusion Llano CPU. This processor integrates four x86 Stars core (already found in the AMD Phenom II) and a AMD Radeon GPU with 400 cores in the same die. Although Intel already integrated a GPU in the Sandy Bridge die, this is the first one that is capable of OpenCL computation. This new single chip combination named as APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) brings new strengths and weaknesses.
