AMD Fusion to arrive in 2H 2009 for notebooks

FUD Zilla claims AMD is planning to release its first Fusion processors in the second half of next year. The first model is called Swift, and this part is aimed at the notebook market.
Swift will have a single or dual-core CPU based on current architecture, so let’s say up to two Star 45nm cores and most likely RV710 graphics inside. The graphics part is still subject to change, but it looks quite realistic to see RV710 like graphics inside of this notebook CPU. In the worst case scenario Swift codenamed Fusion chip will have RV620-like graphics.

The RV710 idea will have to be modified from current 55nm to Fusion’s 45nm, but this can and will be done, at the earliest in late 2008 and most likely through the first part of 2009.
