Hi All,
I've just read this article on ars http://arstechnica.com/business/news/2011/06/amd-launches-second-fusion-cpu-gives-glimpse-at-future-of-cpugpu.ars
I was wondering if this would be a useful CPU for bitcoin mining once it becomes available, they say it has 400 shader units which would surely be capable of quite a few MH/s

It seems that most miners don't bother with utilizing the CPU due to the KW/h vs MH/s problems but with a CPU being a necessary component would it be worth using one of these for a mining rig and gain that little bit of extra performance.

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Header-only clients like MultiBit trust that the majority of mining power is honest for the purposes of enforcing network rules such as the 21 million BTC limit. Full clients do not trust miners in this way.

If it was sitting in your system anyway, and you nabbed a lower wattage one, mobile version, what have you... per watt expended the half of that cpu die that is a gpu would be more efficient then any other cpu out there. So in essence a little baby llano could take a 6 core i7 with ease I would imagine. (in mining duties)

Happily mining at bitcoins.lc
If i've helped...

The MH/watt should be much better than GPUs, especially for the mobile version.  I'd like to see one with 2x the shaders and half the cpu cores.
