The 3rd Generation of Intel's Core architecture, codenamed Ivy Bridge, is set to represent a huge step up in graphics power when it arrives on our desktops in the Spring of next year.
Asus has stepped onboard AMD's Fusion platform with its tongue-twisting F1A75-I Deluxe motherboard, which was launched in London today.
Last month saw the launch of the Llano motherboards from AMD, and if that isn't enough alliteration for you we've now got the release of the desktop Llano APU code-named Lynx. The AMD A8-3850 Fusion APU is the current top-end desktop Llano chip, and is a bit of a doozy.
AMD has announced that it is now shipping production units of its "Llano" APU chips - promising that it brings the power of discrete graphics alongside a powerful processor, with the first products due by June.
