Today I have found an interesting post about making your own AMD Fusion Home Theatre PC. It would be quite interesting if not one thing. They have proposed building an AMD Fusion powered Media Center for “ONLY” $775 (article is here)! What…? Are they building some super duper gaming computer or what? After further reading I could not believe as they have been trying to build the cheapest possible setup. They have even chosen parts that are not expensive comparing to others on the market – but their prices were really high!

“Brazos” platform has been released by AMD and is quite powerful. Two chipsets included in it are E-350 and Hudson M1 FCH. These are actually APU (Accelerated Processing Unit), a term being used by AMD instead of CPU.
These new APUs are quite powerful as well as work on low-power. Various models are known as C-30, C-50, E-240 and E-350. These names are kept “short” and there is no “suffix” or prefix with these names. These new APUs comes with the whole chipset, so if you want to upgrade, buying the whole chipset would be a must.
IBASE technology has introduced a “super” signage player that is powered by the G-Series Fusion APU (by AMD) and has excellent HD6310 graphics. The exact model of the device is SI-18. According to IBASE up till now, it is the world’s smallest x86 digital signage player.
