Arctic Cooling Fusion 550RF ATX Power Supply Review  - Arctic Cooling Fusion 550RF ATX Power Supply Review

"The Fusion 550RF is manufactured by Seasonic for Arctic Cooling and it is internally identical to Corsair VX450W and Antec Earthwatts 500W power supplies. The strange thing about these internally identical power supplies is that the Wattage power ratings are all different. Between the three companies a 100W rating difference is observed, which is pretty crazy no matter where you live or with whom your brand loyalty lies. After a little bit of research it appears that Arctic Cooling rated their power supply at 550W due to that being the peak power rating. This is not something we ever like to see as most other name brand companies don't rate their power supplies like this. The power supply label on the Fusion 550RF says that it can handle 550W loads for a maximum of one full second, so when shopping for power supplies this one is more in the range of a competitor's 450W-500W power supply..."

Computex 2010: AMD demonstrates Fusion APU - Computex 2010: AMD demonstrates Fusion APU
Wed, June 02 2010 | 9:24PM | PermaLink Feedback?"At Computex 2010, AMD has delivered the first public demonstration of an AMD Fusion processor, initiating the accelerated processing era. The AMD Fusion family of accelerated processing units (APUs) represents a significant shift in processor architecture and capabilities, combining high-performance serial computing and parallel graphics processing cores onto a single die to improve visual and data-intensive tasks that are pervasive in today's computing environments, AMD said. Rick Bergman, senior vice president and general manager, AMD Products Group, provided an APU technology demonstration during a press conference today (June 2). The demonstration provided a sneak peek into the upcoming seismic in the computing industry: power-efficient processors that combine CPU, GPU, video processing and other accelerator capabilities in a single-die design to efficiently power the most demanding consumer experiences, from HD video applications to media-rich Internet experiences to DirectX 11 games, AMD said. Consumers are hungry for applications that run faster and make digital media easier to enjoy, and a new wave of software innovation is taking place as AMD software partners take advantage of AMD APUs and GPUs to enable better experiences across an ever-widening set of content, according to AMD. Microsoft joined AMD on stage at Computex and discussed how AMD Fusion APUs can enable improvements to applications such as Microsoft Windows 7 and DirectX 11, and how CPU and GPU collaborative computing can enable superior PC experience."
