Fusion chipset Hudson has USB 3.0

Written by Fuad Abazovic

But for the top SKU
There will be two different versions of AMD's Hudson chipset, the chipset of choice for Fusion APUs. They should talk to Llano or similar APUs and only the top one will have USB 3.0 support.

The others, we heard of two different southbridge chips, will have many USB 2.0 ports, but that is just about it. No USB 3.0 for the cheaper fusion that fits Brazos.  Remember, the first Fusion that aims for Brazos platform is replacing Dorado / Kodiak Athlon II based CPUs in mainstream market.

Fusion is not for the high end, but Lynx platform will be responsible for the upper part of the mainstream market, something that graphics companies usually call the performance market.

Enthusiasts will have to wait for Scorpius platform and Bulldozer CPUs, but most of this stuff comes at some point of 2011.

As we said, Hudson is reserved for Fusion chips that have most of the Northbridge and graphics inside and they will simply act as a Southbridge.

Simply wow! It looks like no more space for VIA and other small players to enter, perhaps maybe on LAN and AUDIO only. Little chance for Nvidia also. Why need buy Nvidia GPU if you have decent DX11 built-in GPU already plus no need for that overwhelming power PSU this time.

I wanna see the size of this fusion chip, it must be somewhat large to fit a dual core CPU, a GPU and a southbridge, if it's the same size as any other CPU then I'll be very impressed

Therea are code names for CPU/GPU, southbridges and platforms.

And the current Athlon II uses Dorado/Kodiak code names?

I am lost. Gonna have to wait for the actual products to sort it out.

I am just wondering, have nVidia ever seriously considered buying VIA ? Sooner or later, it could be the only solution for them... the Holy Grail-X86 license.

Quoting Ferrum Master:
have nVidia ever seriously considered buying VIA

Nvidia costs 6 bil, VIA 2. I don't think they will have enough cash for a buy-out and a merger will most likely result in the same problems as it did in the case of AMD, after which they lost to ATI. Nevermind that NVDA is in freefalling right now at 11$ per share while VIA just going up.
