Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Review AMD has been talking about its Fusion technology, which will combine the CPU and GPU in a single unit, for some time now. It's not due until next year, so we were taken aback when the first incarnation of Fusion turned out to be software, not silicon.

It looks as though AMD has taken a leaf out of Google’s book as AMD Fusion For Gaming is a Beta version at Release Candidate 1, so the usual caveat, that this is software still under development, applies. You can get the 20MB download here.
