Default AMD Fusion successor

Saw this on Hexus. Apparently it will come with 7000 series graphics and pegged to release this year. Does that mean by X'mas we will see a line-up refresh for GPU too?

I REALLY don't think it will be out this year. It seems nearly everyone in the media except Hexus has heard about manufacturing issues at GF which have caused significant delays in Llano channel stock. If they can't get Llano nailed down, how do you expect Trinity to be released this year?

In addition, GF's 22nm manufacturing process isn't anywhere close to being a viable solution and this kind of implementation will NEED 22nm...

meaning it will do 50+% better in 3d apps and shave the power figures as well? :)

that'd be a monster right there.
