Yes. All components of the NB (PCI-E switch, Memory controller, Hypertransport, A-Link) are all in the APU. The NB is completely eliminated. All that remains is an A-Link (PCI-E 2.0 x4 link) between the APU and the southbridge.

Too bad you can't upgrade the current Turion lappies with these. These feature a DDR3 memory controller, and major architectural differences over the current Turion Ultra.
