AMD at its in-house Technical Forum late yesterday showed off a fully functioning example of its  Llano Fusion  processor. T

The CPU and graphics all-in-one was given a full workload and smoothly decoded 1080P Blu-ray video, calculated Pi to the 32 millionth decimal place and generated particle effects all while using the graphics and general-purpose GPU functions of the chip instead of raw CPU power.

The DirectCompute stats had the chip running at about 30 gigaflops of combined speed. Way more than a standard CPU alone could do.

The Llano design is targeted at desktops and standard sized notebooks and will have as many as four core.  It will support iDirectX 11 (OpenGL 4.0) graphics via the GPU directly embedded into the architecture. AMD has promised that the platform will be one of its first 32nm designs which will run significantly faster and cooler than the 45nm chips AMD sells today.
