Unfortunately that artice is very misleading, specifically this part.
According to report from X-bit Labs, leaked AMD documents reveal that Zambezi processors offer similar capabilities to Intel’s Core i7 Sandy Bridge processors. The report also states that AMD’s Zambezi features more over-clocked cores, dual graphics, OpenCL and GPU capabilities. This makes Zambezi more of an integrated graphics chip than a desktop CPU.
Simply put Zambezi DOES NOT
have graphics built in, it in NOT an APU
, it a CPU ONLY.
The "A" series of APU's DOES include graphics capabilities, but DOES NOT have an all-new core design, they are using a modified K10 "stars" core, these will be the mainstream APU's.
The "FX" series of CPU's is the one with the all-new core design, but no graphics.
An extra point to note, "CPU" = an x86 / 64-bit processor. "APU" = "Accelerated Processing Unit", it is an x86 / 64-bit processor with a capable graphics processor included, hence "Accelerated" by the included GPU (graphics chip).
I hope this clears up some information about AMD's upcoming CPU's and APU's.
