As I understand it, the Linux kernel has had good support for Intel and AMD CPUs (pretty obvious since your OS installs and runs fine!).
But now that AMD is releasing their new Fusion APUs, is it just a gimmick marketing scheme and can be treated as a CPU by the Linux kernel, or is this APU something new and new kernel support needs to be added? Since the Fusion APUs are slated to include the functions of the GPU, will Linux be able to take advantage of all its functions?
This might have implications on whether my next Linux machine can and/or should be based on AMD Fusion hardware or not.
