AMD revealed the first die shot of the LIano APU, this 32nm chip will be AMD's first Fusion processor. LIano will be based on the Phenom II and will feature on-die DirectX 11 graphics. The chip features 1 billion transistors and is expected to be available in early 2011.
Fusion got another boost in AMD's PR strategy. The long delayed project to fuse CPU and GPU on a since chip, is said to be released in early 2011. AMD wants to send the first samples to partners in late 2010. The new design accumulates about one billion transistors on the chip a die-shot has been released, too. Fusion will be produced in 32 nanometer process. Its CPU will be based on the Phenom II while the GPU is aligned to the current DirectX 11 generation.
