AMD Fusion Gaming Utility

AMD has launched its new "Fusion" marketing campaign, promoting the synergy between their CPUs and GPUs, as detailed on their Fusion website. The program carries the slogan "The Future is Fusion," and the announcement offers a little world-class marketing-speak to describe what this means: "Fusion is AMD’s way to express how we blend our customers’ needs, dreams and desires with our unique passion for enabling innovation." Wading through this will offer a boon to owners of AMD technology, as the site offers a beta of what they are calling the AMD Fusion Gaming Utility, which is intended to improve performance on AMD processor-based PCs with the click of a button by "temporarily reducing resource-consuming background services while boosting compute performance with advanced acceleration technologies." The utility also includes options for advanced users to tune and overclock their systems. More information and the beta utility itself can be found on the Fusion for Gaming Page. Also, Bjorn3d has an article about the utility after taking it for a test drive.
