And, also like me, may be acquainted with “casual” folks spread across the spectrum of devices and operating
When AMD bought ATI the long-term plan was to integrate the GPU cores in the same die than the CPU cores to bring a new scale of heterogeneous computing. The integration has resulted to be harder than originally planned and only the last Kaveri APUs start to show the benefits of the integration. However, there
