AMD Fusion

A family of CPU chips from AMD that includes a graphics processing unit (GPU) built onto the same die. In 2011, the first of these "Accelerated Processing Units" (APUs) were low-power chips introduced for netbooks and tablets. First-generation Fusion APUs have separate memory banks for the CPU and GPU but provide a high-speed block transfer between the two memory regions.

Graphics and Non-Graphics
AMD's APUs provide advanced graphics and video processing; however, applications can use the GPU to improve voice, face and gesture recognition as well as any function that can take advantage of hardware-based parallel processing. See GPU and AMD.
