Core i, and amd fusion processor line

Sorry if this has already been asked.

With the i3, i5, and the new amd fusion processors, if discreet graphics are used can the gpu that's built into the processor be used to assist the cpu?

    With Fusion, yes. But theres no much details avaliable.
  2. Fusion will likely support some sort of crossfire support, as the current integrated graphics from AMD offer crossfire support with low end discrete cards, but I haven't seen it confirmed anywhere.
  3. I'm not talking crossfire or sli, I mean gpu assisting the cpu. Kinda like an extra core with special features.

    That's the definition of the Graphics Processing Unit. Anything it can do faster is offloaded onto the GPU, provided there is software support. Gaming obviously makes massive use of this.
