AMD working on new multi-GPU technology

Written by Slobodan Simic

For Fusion Llano's

After getting praise for its Fusion Zacate APU, it looks like AMD will switch its attention to Llano APUs that are aimed at mainstream desktop, business and AIO PC markets. The Llano is meant to be a direct competition to Intel's Core i5 and Core i3 CPUs and will feature a technology similar to the Hybrid CrossFireX that will pair up the GPU integrated in the Fusion APU with a discrete AMD Radeon card, including the HD 6000 series.

As you probably already know, The Llano APU is a part of AMD's Lynx platform and features dual core CPU paired up with a DirectX 11 GPU. The new multi-GPU technology will pair up the existing GPU with a discrete card which should provide additional performance boost and, of course, provide a much better display connectivity.

Donanimhaber managed to get their hands on on a couple of slides that show a performance improvement of a Llano APU with and without the additional discrete card and the it is quite impressive. We are quite sure that AMD will come up with something similar to Nvidia Optimus and the discrete GPU will be able to power down or up depending on the load.

Of course, we are still to see AMD's Lynx platform in action but we quite sure that more details will show up as we get closer to the launch date.
