The Inq has some more info about AMD's Fusion which will arrive in 2009:
When it comes to Fusion as we know it, the company is currently lamenting how to implement graphics processing into the CPU silicon, given the traditional incompatibilities between the two.

It's definitely a possibility that the company will outsource the complete package to TSMC or implement MCM packaging (Multi-chip Module), but all that we can tell you now is that the AMD Fusion processor will be consisted out of one, two, three, four Bulldozer cores and a graphics part based on R700 architecture.

The name R700 was not mentioned anywhere, but has support for DirectX 10.1 API and second-generation UVD on one of the slides. AMD does not want to confirm the actual specs at the moment, but it is certain that this will not be a R600/700 design, but rather something new.
