AMD Vision Fusion processors to bring about cheap and powerful notebooks

If there’s one thing that makes inexpensive laptops less than appealing is their tendency to include integrated graphics chips that can’t cut it past playing some video. AMD’s Vision processor lineup will be the company’s first chips that combine a graphics chip and processor for the consumer market. Normally the integrated graphics solutions are hosted on a system’s northbridge chipset but combining the processor and a graphics core, along with most of the northbridge functionality, improves overall system performance which leads to some peppy chips that can handle a bit of light end gaming and with fewer chips to deal with as well as some energy efficiency magic means more life from the same basic batteries budget notebooks ship with. The AMD Brazos platform is one to keep an eye on.
