Smart Access Memory will work on Intel, AMD combos too.

Since the announcement last month of [Only registered and activated users can see links Click here to register], a feature that allows AMD CPUs to access all the VRAM in a Radeon GPU; many were concerned the feature would only work within AMD's ecosystem.
