Neowin visited AMD at CES 2011 and got to see a Fusion-based ASUS Eee PC.
We stopped by AMD at CES, who were happy to show off several netbooks and laptops powered by their Bobcat range of processors. Bobcat processors are based on the Fusion APU, where the GPU and CPU are soldered together on a single die. These processors sport a DirectX 11 GPU complex, as well as an HD Unified decoder allowing for high quality HD streaming and performance. These 40nm chips are dual core, based on the x86 architecture, and use a 512KB L2 cache.
Several series are available, including the 18 watt E-series, and the lower powered 9 watt C-Series. The C series will be primarily used in sub 10 inch netbooks, while the E series will be utilized in more mainstream desktop and laptop form factors and will meet the average needs of a consumer, including basic gaming and HD consumption. Battery life tests indicate the E series gets up to 10 hours of battery life, while the C series manages at least 12+ hours of battery life.
