Our online source reports that two teams are developing AMD's next-generation Fusion processor, with one focusing on using silicon on insulator (SOI) for the high-end market while the other is developing the chip using bulk processing from Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) to target the entry-level market.

AMD will continue its corporation with Charted Semiconductor for processing on SOI while TSMC may get OEM orders for the processor if the bulk development goes well, reported the paper. If AMD decides to launch only SOI-based processors, however, then Charted Semiconductor will be the only company to benefit from the development

Fusion-based processors are alegedly supposed to combine the CPU and graphics processor unit on one die.
