AMD scores $510m profit from runaway Fusion success

AMD logoAMD has revealed strong first quarter results for 2011 generating $1.61 billion in gross revenue, which yielded a net income of $510 million. Much of its bump in earnings was generated by the arrival of its Fusion CPU/GPU hybrid chips. "First quarter operating results were highlighted by strong demand for our first generation of AMD Fusion Accelerated Processing Units (APUs)," said Thomas Seifert, CFO and interim CEO. "APU unit shipments greatly exceeded our expectations, and we are excited to build on that momentum now that we are shipping our 'Llano' APU."

AMD’s Fusion APUs combine high-performance serial computing and parallel graphics processing on a single die and have a performance edge, particularly in graphics processing, over equivalent components from Intel. Primarily, their big selling points are their performance per watt, and their ability to handle DirectX 11. They come in two versions, the low-power Ontario for ultraportables and netbooks as well as the Llano for mainstream notebooks and desktops.

Manufacturers to have released devices powered by AMD’s Fusion APU’s include MSI, Lenovo and HP.
