AMD to Deliver x86 Platforms for Windows 8


AMD has created drivers to enable support for the upcoming Windows 8 operating system on AMD-based tablets, netbooks, PCs and servers. the company is working with Microsoft to empower a new generation of PCs and small form factor computing devices.

Currently available Windows 7-based PCs powered by AMD VISION technology deliver multi-core processing, discrete-level graphics for HD experiences, and AMD AllDay Power for entertainment on the go. Furthermore, AMD VISION Engine Software is tailored to unlock visual computing with AMD Radeon Cores and video accelerators that enable HD, AMD Steady Video software and accelerated applications like fast Internet browsing.

AMD offers a broad range of computing platforms, including notebook and desktop PCs, tablets, workstations and servers, that are suited to support Windows 8 and offer compatibility with a pervasive x86 ecosystem. AMD technology offers a platform for the forthcoming Windows 8, with native support for Microsoft DirectX 11, C++ AMP, OpenCL and Accelerated HTML5, as well as planned support of DirectX 11.1 features.

AMD PC and Server Platforms for Windows 8

- AMD Z-Series family of APUs for HD tablets
- AMD C-Series and E-Series APU families for ultrathin and mainstream notebooks and netbooks
- AMD A-Series family of APUs for high-performance notebooks and desktops
- Forthcoming AMD FX 8-Core Processor Black Edition for high-performance desktops
- AMD FirePro professional graphics for desktops and workstations
- AMD Radeon graphics for desktop and notebook PCs and embedded applications
- AMD Radeon embedded graphics for mobile
- AMD Opteron 6000 Series platform offering a twelve-core x86 processor for servers
- AMD Opteron 4000 Series platform including the world?s lowest power-per-core server processor

AMD products slated for next year include two new notebook PC APUs codenamed "Krishna" and "Trinity". The "Trinity" APU, which will be based on the "Bulldozer" x86 core with support for UVD and DirectX 11, is expected to consume less than half the power of today?s lowest power AMD A-Series APU, bringing performance computing to ultrathin notebooks, with software drivers optimized for Windows 8. Continued enhancements to the low-power PC platform based on AMD C-Series and E-Series APU families also are expected.
