With that in mind, how does the ATI acquisition contribute to that?Hester says the first chips with an integrated CPU and GPU will be made on a 45nm process. Read on over here.
What's very interesting to us about the ATI acquisition is that now we can really make the right set of optimizations without artificial boundaries. There's a war right now between the CPU (central processing unit) and the GPU (graphics processing unit) guys, and to be honest, it's a bit of an artificial war. So a better approach is to be able to handle that stuff together where you can make the right trade-offs. If we need to move silicon between the CPU and the GPU, we can do that now.
