We are happy to announce that Foxconn, a leader in computer components and Nettops, has provided us with a Fusion based Nettop.
With this device, we will be able to test and improve our Fusion images for the future Nettop devices. At this moment, we are in the middle of its test phase and as published earlier there are still bridges to cross in order for XBMC itself to fully support this new processor architecture.
Fusion is AMD's answer to the next generation green and powerful processors.
It combines CPU and GPU power in one chip, and provides strong capability's to stream Full HD content, and still do other tasks in the background.
