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.

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.
