To enrich computing experience across tablets, notebook and desktop PCs, workstations and servers

By CBR Staff Writer

AMD has introduced drivers to enable support for the forthcoming Windows 8 operating system on the company based tablets, netbooks, PCs and servers.

AMD technology also offers native support for Microsoft DirectX 11, C++ AMP, OpenCL and Accelerated HTML5, as well as planned support of DirectX 11.1 features.

Presently available Windows 7-based PCs powered by AMD Vision technology deliver multi-core processing, discrete-level graphics and AMD AllDay Power for entertainment on the go.

In addition, AMD Vision Engine Software is designed to unlock visual computing with AMD Radeon Cores and video accelerators that enable vivid HD, AMD Steady Video software and accelerated applications like fast Internet browsing.

For business customers, the combination of AMD Opteron processors and Windows Server enables virtualization, versatile Web and application serving and capacity-rich data management.

AMD Product Group senior vice president and general manager Rick Bergman said with more than 320 design wins for APU technology to date, and a long history of innovation, AMD delivers the ideal platforms to bring Windows 8 to life on tablets, netbooks, notebooks and desktop PCs, leveraging the full performance of 64-bit x86 computing.
