FUD Zilla reports AMD is planning to introduce Llano for notebooks in late 2011. This Fusion chip is based on a dual-core Phenom design, it features integrated DX11 graphics and will be bundled with a south bridge with USB 3.0 support.
The other part of the AMD's Fusion product called Llano includes DirectX 11 class graphics, probably something very similar to Park mainstream mobile GPU based on Evergreen. The TDP of this discrete chip should vary between 8W and 15W and in Llano this TDP is likely to be lower. The DX11 Evergreen class integrated GPU brings support for UVD 3.0 video engine.

The memory of choice supported is DDR3 1600MHz as GPU part will need some fast access to the memory. The southbridge codename Hudson M2 will also get USB 3.0 support, 4X PCIe, 6 SATA with RAID and CIR as well as the clock generator.
