06/03/12 -- COMPUTEX TAIPEI 2012 -- AMD (NYSE: AMD) will welcome attendees, customers and partners toCOMPUTEX TAIPEI 2012 with system demonstrations of the second generation AMD A-Series Accelerated Processor Unit (APU) and the newest AMD E-Series APUs, both designed for best-in-classPC entertainment, gaming, and battery life. A debut event themorning of June 6 in Taipei will underscore the diverse range oforiginal equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and independent softwarevendors (ISVs) supporting AMD's 2012 product offerings, provideupdates on new products, and demonstrate the powerful applicationsleveraging the unique processing power of the APU. A live webcast of the "Life More Brilliant" event will be available. "There could not be a better location than COMPUTEX in Taiwan torecognize our customers and technology partners, and celebratetheir contributions to the rapidly growing APU ecosystem," saidLisa Su, senior vice president and general manager, AMD GlobalBusiness Units and host of the upcoming event. |
"AMD saw consumerswanting a more visually-demanding, entertainment-focused PCexperience long ago and created a product strategy to enhance thoseexperiences. This week we will proudly share with the rest of theworld the latest advances and accomplishments we have made with ourcustomers." Systems featuring the latest AMD A-Series APUs from global computermanufacturers will be on display in Booth L0607 in the TWTC NangangExhibition Hall, where AMD is being recognized as a winner of the 2012 Best Choice of COMPUTEX TAIPEI award for the second consecutive year. New Systems from Ultrathin Notebooks to Performance Desktops AllBenefit Introduced in mid-May for notebooks and coming to store shelves indesktop systems starting this week, the second generation AMD A-Series APU enables a best-in-class PC entertainment and gaming experience,and introduces new features including: The AMD HD Media Accelerator , with a unique set of technologies designed to optimize videoquality available with premium and Internet video content, andaccelerate video file conversion; An increase in CPU performance of up to 29 percent (1) with higher processor speeds thanks to the company's latestmulti-core x86 architecture, with third generation AMD Turbo Core technology where power is dynamically shifted between the CPU and GPUdepending on application needs; AMD Radeon HD 7000 Series graphics for an increase of graphics performance up to 56 percent over theprevious generation(2). Combined, the CPU and GPU cores delivermore than 700 gigaflops of computing performance(3) -- severaltimes more than the fastest x86 CPUs -- to boost performance ofhundreds of applications; Support for AMD Eyefinity Technology for up to four monitors of immersive, multi-monitor gaming andproductivity(4); AMD Radeon dual graphics support that delivers a performance boost of up to 75 percent whenadding a discrete graphics card to the APU(5). Desktop systems are available today from Acer, Asus, HP and Lenovo,including unique All-in-One (AIO) PCs.
