AMD Releases Open Source Driver for Fusion Chip

by Keith Vance

AMD next-generation Fusion APU chip is a low-power, dual-core processor.

On Monday, AMD released an open source driver for their new Fusion chip product line.

"The dual-core chip in question, called Ontario," PCWorld's Katherine Noyes reported, "is a low-powered offering in AMD's Fusion line and is designed primarily for use in netbooks and similar devices. Complete with integrated Radeon HD 6250 graphics, the Ontario is the first chip in that line to get Linux support, including 3D."

Fusion support is not expected to be included in the Linux kernel until 2.6.38, Noyes said.
