Good. This is why they bought ATI in 2006. This combined with there expertise in SoC and high end modular circuit production is just taking everything they are good at and making something new. Doubt this will come out in 3/4 years though

All that research into heterogeneous computing and apu's looks as though it's gonna pay some decent dividends

Hopefully! Would definitely be a huge innovation if they did this.
