I don't know what to think about this. Unified processor with "ATI cores" on die seems to me like AMD shooting itself in leg on Linux playground. Everybody knows the status o Graphics in Linux. nVidia produce its binary blobs that works satisfactory, ATI produce binary blob, that is far worse and released some docs for others to write OSS driver from scratch. Only Intel supports OSS drivers directly.

Imagine the situation, AMD release this kind of CPU, but without own primary support for it GPU cores. They don't do this today, and they won't do this in future because of 3rd party IP jail. So linux user will buy half functional CPU, waiting long time for OSS driver to bring only a part of second half of functionality?

Very strange situation on Linux playground with future AMD CPUs...
