Am I confused here or did Intel not just release Sandy Bridge which also contains a GPU with a CPU?
Your confused. AMD Fusion is a GPU with a CPU added in. Intel's Sandy Bridge is a CPU with a GPU added in. This release is nothing but the expected AMD pushing their new GPUs into the mobile space.

Your confused. This is chocolate with a peanut butter center.
Your confusion is understandable though, because the subject of this article (the 6000M notebook GPUs) have nothing to do with all the Fusion talk in the first three paragraphs, except that they are mutually exclusive to each other; Notebooks with Fusion APUs won't be using these 6000Ms.
