Why AMD


          AMD is a leading designer and integrator of innovative, tailored technology solutions that empower people to push the boundaries of what is possible.

          Leading the Industry in 64-bit, Multi-Core, and Emerging Technologies

          AMD develops technology specifically to meet customer needs. That's why they are the industry leader in developing crucial enterprise technologies like power management, 64-bit, and multi-core computing that are driving data centers to new levels of efficiency while meeting the demands of today's complex business environment.

          64-bit computing technology

          AMD64 is the world's first 64-bit, fully x86-compatible computing platform designed to handle the growing data and compute demands of our global, digital economy. In AMD64, we deliver a world-class processor family that runs all of today's software with no performance penalty, yet provides a 64-bit insurance policy for the inevitable time when 32- bit solutions are a distant memory.

          The AMD64 product family includes:

          • AMD Opteron™ processor — servers and workstations
          • AMD Athlon™ 64 processor — clients and notebooks
          • AMD Turion™ 64 mobile technology — notebooks

          Multi-core technology

          We designed AMD64 from the ground up for multiple core computing, and in 2005 we delivered on this promise by introducing the world's first x86-based multi-core processors.

          The Dual-Core AMD Opteron processor is setting new performance standards. Available from leading enterprise vendors such as HP, IBM, and Sun, the Dual-Core AMD Opteron is the force behind the world's highest performing x86 servers and workstations and with the same CPU power requirements as our single-core processors.

          The AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core processor shatters the hourglass on desktops and clients, delivering breakthrough performance for users who need to run multiple applications to be productive as well as for users who are running computationally intensive tasks.

          Emerging technology

          AMD is focused on meeting core enterprise needs of better consolidation and management of data center resources by driving technology innovations in such emerging areas as Virtualization, Power Management, and security. Our goal is to develop technologies to meet enterprise challenges of today, tomorrow, and beyond.
