Adobe Flash Player 10.2 has been released today for Windows, Mac and Linux, adding support for AMD’s low power Fusion APUs (and higher end models with discrete GPUs) by utilizing AMD’s Stage Video API for hardware acceleration. Supported processors include the C-30, C-50 and E-350 with the promise of flawless 1080p HD YouTube content, which, interestingly enough, our AMD C-50 benchmarks from last week showed that the Ontario platform could handle such content with ease prior to this release – not sure on the exact details of that test though.

Additional features supported include custom native mouse cursors, multiple monitor full-screen support (so you can finally watch videos full screen on one monitor and do stuff on another monitor), IE9 hardware acceleration and better text rendering for better readability.
