AMD Already Has Open-Source Fusion Drivers

“There’s good news for those of you wanting to quickly go out
and pickup an AMD Fusion system as soon as it’s available: there’s
already open-source drivers for Fusion.

“AMD’s Alex Deucher has now confirmed that there are open-source
graphics drivers for Fusion on Linux already in existence, but
they’re just waiting for them to be approved for release. Alex
(a.k.a. agd5f) mentioned this in our forums. “Open drivers are
already written, just waiting for final approval to release.”

“While it’s a bit of a surprise that the open-source drivers are
already written and just behind held up by approval (perhaps more
legal reviews), it should not come as a complete surprise that AMD
has been working on open-source drivers for this CPU+GPU combo
architecture.”
