Default AMD mulls a CPU+GPU super-chip in a server reboot

Lisa Su commenting on an earnings call Thursday: http://www.pcworld.com/article/30991...er-reboot.html

Su's comment was in response to a question on whether AMD would ultimately combine its Zen CPU with a GPU based on the upcoming Vega architecture into one big chip for enterprise servers and supercomputing.

"Obviously, it'll come in time," Su said. "It's an area where combining the two technologies makes a lot of sense."
I am thinking more inline with a CPU + GPU up to 2x each on an interposer using HBM memory vice a single big chip. Maybe if Zen is successful and AMD shows a fair profit will that come about. The two would make a lot of sense for HPC systems.

I worked at a startup a couple years back that was focused on some real high-power computing for big-data analytics, and we were using multi-titan setups that really blew away anything in the cpu arena. It's really not a bad idea at all, for servers that really have to crunch a ton of data.
