AMD To Showcase Turbo Dock Technology For Hybrids at Mobile World Congress 2013


AMD will showcase a power-saving technology for the new, APU-powered hybrid PCs, at Mobile World Congress 2013 in Barcelona, Spain next week.

Hybrid PCs are a new market segment between full notebooks and tablets that AMD plans to demonstrate, along with stand-alone performance tablets.

Dubbed "AMD Turbo Dock technology", it automatically adjusts performance of the AMD accelerated processing unit (APU) higher while a hybrid PC is docked and being used for more complex tasks.

Likewise, AMD Turbo Dock is designed to lower power consumption when in tablet mode, helping to save battery life.

"AMD Turbo Dock technology delivers on that promise by dynamically adjusting to what the user is doing to provide the optimal experience and battery life whether they are watching a video, playing a DirectX 11-supported game or building a PowerPoint presentation for work," said Steve Belt, vice president of AMD Ultra-low Power Products.

AMD Turbo Dock technology is expected to appear this year on equipped hybrid systems built around the system-on-chip (SoC) codenamed "Temash" with AMD Radeon HD graphics. "Temash" is AMD?s latest ultra-low power, mobility processor for Windows 8 tablets and hybrids. AMD claims that the new SoC delivers five times the graphics performance of the competition?s x86 tablet solution - the Intel Atom Z2760.

Demonstrations at Mobile World Congress will include applications and games on both quad-core and dual-core versions of the processor built with 28nm manufacturing technology.

Other features available from AMD-based tablets and hybrids include:

- Access to the AMD AppZone, a one-stop resource for accessing popular applications that can take advantage of the full compute capability of the processor;
- AMD Start Now technology that allows fast boot and resume from sleep times;
- AMD Radeon HD graphics on the APU, with support for full HD 1080p resolution, HDMI output for external displays, and high gaming performance with Microsoft DirectX 11 capability;
- Windows 8 and Windows 7 support with backward compatibility for all Windows applications.

AMD Start Now technology is a BIOS-optimized solution designed to deliver better system responsiveness by minimizing the time to wake up the system from sleep mode, boot the system to desktop and connect to a wireless local area network. The technology is available with select AMD APUs when running Windows 7 or Windows 8.
