At the Distree XXL conference in Monaco, AMD have been chatting with KitGuru and they told us that they have shipped over a million Fusion chips already.
While this is a positive number for AMD to be quoting at such an early stage, it all boils down whether AMD will be able to maximise their sales with the recent Intel Cougar Point issue. The money from Fusion earns them a decent profit, as for every Brazos distribution sale at $100 they can sell it on at a $10 margin, which works out pretty close to the Atom figures we were given last year.
Word of mouth however at the Distree XXL conference hints that partner confidence is lacking a little, with AMD accused of having no strategy at all to capitalise on Intel’s Sandybridge mess.
