AMD has been promising Fusion for almost three years now, and it seems we may have to wait another three years to see the first products based on this strategy. TweakTown reports AMD's first Fusion processor may arrive in 2012 - it's expected to be a 22nm part.
If you remember AMD talked up Barcelona because it was a “true” quad core CPU and not two Dies cobbled together like the Core 2 Quad. Now I am seeing a similar pattern. AMD talked of Fusion long before Intel, but Intel is closer to actual launch than AMD is. By the time we see Fusion, Intel will have had their Pineview and Clarkdale CPUs out, in fact with the Tic-Tock method Intel might have a two generation lead on AMD before they get them in the market.
