'With Fusion, AMD tried to get users to re-think our computer usage model. Instead of always going for the fastest CPU, the Fusion APU is designed to yield a tangible performance enhancement that an average computer user can take full advantage of. Llano is not designed to take home any awards based on its CPU alone, though it is packed with plenty of computing power, so that an average user would not experience any major performance hit. However, it is paired with an integrated graphics chip that is much more powerful than other CPU's on the market, namely Intel's flagship Sandy Bridge.
AMD stated that every minute, average 35 hours of video was uploaded to YouTube in 2010. In AMD's view, average PC users' demand is not just a processor that can do computational work, but also handle HD content and simple games. AMD believes graphical power is just as important as CPU power for today's PC users. With Llano, AMD wants to offer a chip with balanced CPU and GPU performance.'
