AMD Says More Windows 8 PC Designs Coming


AMD says that more than 125 Windows 8-based PC designs powered by AMD chips are coming from ASUS, Dell, Fujitsu, HP, Lenovo, Samsung, Sony, Toshiba and more.

With a hardware accelerated user interface, Microsoft and AMD have collaborated to design Windows 8 to unlock the graphics capabilities found in AMD accelerated processing units (APUs) and discrete AMD Radeon graphics processing units (GPUs).

Features found in the latest AMD APU and GPU platforms are enhancing the Windows 8 experience, including:

- AMD Start Now Technology: AMD-powered Windows 8-based notebooks boot, resume and respond faster than x86 solutions;

- AMD Catalyst drivers compatible with Windows 8 featuring support for DirectX 11, DirectX 11.1 and Windows Display Driver Model 1.2;

- AMD AllDay Power enables users to experience more than 12 hours of resting battery life on their AMD-based device;

- AMD Eyefinity Technology: a feature unique to AMD-powered PCs, users can now span their Windows 8 desktop, user interface, games and apps across three or more monitors;

- AMD App Acceleration: AMD Radeon GPUs with AMD App Acceleration let users run multiple applications at the same time with speed and reliability. Users running AMD-powered Windows 8 PCs can run desktop apps as well as new apps available from the Windows Store and from AMD AppZone.
