    CPU + GPU, possible????

    NathanOSY

      Hi all, i am developing a new project to compete with Intel's Larrabee GPU project. Currently i still studied inside the University but i kept thinking of researching new tech for the future. Still, i am not working with any semiconductor factory yet.

      I also design the blue prints of the next phased GPU (only 50% completed and basic phase).

      What had crossed my mind is should a CPU and GPU hybrid together??? Any comments will be appreciate. :)

          Hi NathanOSY,

          As you may already know, that is one of the reasons why AMD acquired ATI back in 2006. AMD has had press briefings on just such a strategy. If you google "AMD Fusion" it will bring up appropriate articles on AMD's position.

              2006? That's 4 -four- years ago, and not a single sysem is out yet, to my knowledge. Is it the heating-problems that holds the combine CPU+GPU back?

              How about an integrated water/nitrogen-cooler into the module? ;-) Maybe it sounds far off, but ATI and AMD has made a lot of thermal improvement since the 65&90nm days. Luckily. ;-)
