One Million AMD Accelerated Processing Units Shipped
 
XBit Labs has an interested nugget gleaned from AMD's Financial results call:

Advanced Micro Devices said that it has so far shipped over one million of accelerated processing units (APUs) for entry-level notebooks as well as netbooks. In addition, the company said that the shipments of its DirectX 11-class graphics processing units (GPUs) have surpassed 35 million units.

"Industry momentum for Fusion is strong and growing. OEM adoption of Brazos is excellent. We shipped more than 1 million Brazos platforms in its debut quarter to world class OEMs including Acer, Asus, Dell, HP, Lenovo, MSI, Samsung, Sony and Toshiba," said Thomas Seifert, interim chief executive officer of AMD, during the company's fourth quarter-related conference call with financial analysts.

Great news, however i'm still trying to find an E-350 APU based motherboard for sale - plenty of products specced on various manufacturer's websites, but nothing in stock... :(

They need to make an APU based desktop board with around 4 of those APUs soldered on. 4 way SMP and crossfire so why not?

Been looking forward for these for a long time. When are the Bobcat APUs coming? Those are the one with more shaders right?

Crossfire is for gaming, applications will need to have native support for multiple devices. It's probably better perf/watt and perf/$ to go with a bulldozer based product than bobcat one, in the server space.

These are the bobcat based APU's. There are different configurations of APU. Llano has higher SIMD count, due Q2 I think.
