Can't We All Just Get Along?

AMD is working hard on bringing together two of their next generation technologies: Fusion and Torrenza. It's been long since thought that Fusion, a GPU that can share room on die with the main CPU, would do well in a laptop platform. So what is chief rival, Intel, doing? Making their own standard, of course!

"While Torrenza is well on its way to seeing daylight, Intel is also working on its own open architecture platform. Notorious for keeping its CPU platform a closely guarded technology, Intel indicated that it was working on a competitive technology to AMD's HyperTransport, dubbed CSI, allowing direct CPU and memory access."

One of these days it sure would be nice to say both AMD and Intel working on platforms with common parts instead of trying their level best to force users into one camp or the other.
