Run AMD's Fusion utility on any processor

Dreading Taxes? Let Shoeboxed Do Some Of The Legwork

Although we were a little underwhelmed at what Fusion actually turned out to be (it got a lot of hype), the good news is that it’s helpful anyway, and it’s not bound to hardware. AMD doesn’t want you to do this of course, and the usual caveats of “at your own risk, etc” apply, but there is a way to make Fusion work on your Intel or (I should think) even VIA processor.

Follow the instructions here, but beware! It involves editing some very low-level code, as in hex values! If you have not done this before it is not recommended that you try (I’m not going to), but if you’re confident in your abilities, go ahead. What you’re essentially doing is just removing the code that limits the program to being run on AMD-based systems. Kind of shady, but it should work.
