AMD had a good showing this year with the amount of products that it brought to the table. One of the most anticipated products on display were the APU boards; a compact powerful platform for everyday use and light gaming. AMD claims the Fusion APU is a more efficient design over the current Intel Atom designs. Next to the APU boards, AMD had on display several of its 6000 series video cards. AMD also had some partner models of small form factor PCs and all-in-one PCs that use the APU platform on display for the viewers.
In addition to the hardware, AMD was showing off a few visual components, such as its Xpand Universal 3D glasses and, of course, its Eyefinity display setup. One display that really caught our eye was the touch display table that allows a user to control media hardware via the interface.
One really nice display was showing how AMD had used the efficiency of the Fusion platform to build three compact systems. The first is a Smorkin Labbrit, which has a Fusion computer inside with a projection screen playing a movie on the wall (you can see where the image is projected from!). The second is an HTCP with a Silverstone case for multimedia. Finally, there was a car dashboard showing the space and power that Fusion has.
