The AMD Fusion Family of Accelerated Processing Units (APUs) is coming. These processors' compatibility with Microsoft Windows 7 and DirectX 11 is designed to ensure that they will provide an outstanding out-of-the-box experience for those who use PCs built on them. Working in conjunction with the advanced x86 processor cores, an APU's multiple vector cores enable software developers to create innovative new applications that expand usage models and make PCs fast, easy to use, and more intuitive. The recent introduction of new tools (DirectCompute and OpenCL) for thread-level and data-parallel applications development simplifes the task of creating these applications. The development platforms and tools are scheduled to be widely available. The rest is up to entrepreneurial developers and PC manufacturers.
