AMD has apparently managed to ship a million Fusion APUs in December 2010, ahead of the product launch.

This is no small feat considering the launch timeline, as the first products started trickling to the market in the second half of January. It is also worth noting that several weeks ago Fudo learned that Fusion parts will be in short supply due to high demand.

According to Techeye's Mike Magee, sources close to AMD confirmed the figures at the Distree XXL conference in Monaco.
