Ars Technica expands on AMD's Fusion, the united GPU/CPU we hope to see sometime before 2010.  They also look at companies that have tried this in the past, as well as a quick look at what Intel may do to unite the 2 processors.

"When the AMD-ATI merger was announced, one of the first rumors to emerge and then quickly be confirmed was that

a combined CPU/GPU product was in the works. From one perspective, the idea of putting CPU and GPU hardware on

the same piece of silicon might seem like a novel idea from nowhere, but the industry has been moving in this

direction for some time. In fact, back in 1999 I reported that Sun's MAJC was ostensibly headed in the direction

of integrating the CPU and GPU on to the same piece of silicon."
