AMD Fusion chips are CPU/GPU combos so you get the best of both in that
regard. The next gen HSA platform promises to be even more powerful but
AMD will have to survive long enough for that promise to be delivered.
They have made some recent progress with opencl support for Linux so that
has been well received.

I have been assured that the brand new NUC platform from Intel is fully
Linux compatible with opengl/cl support too. What specific issues are you
seeing?

Compared to AMD, Intel are actually making a lot of headway with their
Linux drivers. At least they actually release the specs these days and
have a full department for Linux development. AMD are having real trouble
getting their heads around the concept of open source *and* multimedia. My
dealings with Intel so far suggest they are light years ahead in terms of
understanding the potential. Compared to AMD it's almost night and day.
