AMD has been very public with its Fusion plans for a few years now and it would seem that the first infused processors are closer to becoming reality.

The company displayed a fully functioning “APU” (Accelerated Processing Unit) at Computex today offering a glimpse at what the future holds in store for end users. The chip was shown playing through a bit of Aliens Versus Predator during their press conference below right around the 59:00 minute mark.

While being able to run some games is an exciting aspect the DirectCompute and OpenCL features are something to look forward to once developers start harnessing it for more than just graphics.
