CES 2011: Experience, talking computers
AMD's favorite word of the half decade was Fusion and some 5 years after they started talking about it, they actually have chips and they are almost in retail as we speak.

Last night, AMD threw a party for press and partners and invited Joel McHale to make fun of the geeks who attended. Unfortunately, Joel somewhat embarrassed himself with his limited knowledge of technology. One of Joel's guests was AMD CEO, fearsome Dirk Meyer and he talked about why AMD is better.
AMD came up with a claim that 50 percent of the internet runs AMD, which is a bit hard to believe. The most interesting part, however, was the HD 2.0 that AMD talked about.
Dirk also expressed his wish to talk to his PC in the future and he hopes that PC will understand and answer him back, but again there are still a lot of things that needed to happen in order to make that possible.
AMD sees HD 2.0 as HD that runs on everything; its all about experience on waching a HD on your computer. HD 2.0 is something that they come up since just about anything can play HD these days, even mobile phones.
Of course, you need AMD chips to get the better experience as AMD Fusion has DirectX 11 support, and Intel doesn't, that was the key point.
We have our fingers crossed for AMD's Bulldozer as its time to give Intel some decent competition.
