AMD Radeon M300 Series OEM notebook graphics
AMD Radeon M300 series is based on the award-winning architecture AMD Graphics Core Next (GCN), which provides full support of Direct X® 12 for superior performance and computer games, as well as providing low power consumption technologies intelligent through AMD Enduro ™ technology 1 . Currently Alienware, Dell, HP, Lenovo and Toshiba, are already delivering some designs with these settings, and soon so will other OEM.
Upgrade to the desktop AMD APU A Series
From May 10, the desktop APU products from AMD will be available for new prices and offer new features and benefits to end users. Desktop AMD APUs Series A are ready for Windows 10, including the DirectX 12 features and multiengine Multiadapter. Combined with existing support for AMD and AMD FreeSync ™ Mantle and functions for heterogeneous queuing (HQ) and heterogeneous uniform memory access (Huma) HSA authorized by the OpenCL ™ 2.0 and OpenGL 4.4 applications, the AMD A series APUs are ready to increase the value of the games and applications of today and tomorrow’s most popular productivity.
AMD also announced updates to its product plans and Computer Graphics (CG) in the areas of accelerated processing unit (APU), central processing unit (CPU) and GPU products, which are planned for launch in 2016.
” We have identified excellent opportunities for long-term growth in different markets for high-performance computing and visualization capabilities that only AMD can offer, “said Dr. Lisa Su, President and CEO of AMD.
It also offered details about its future strategy to drive profitable growth through next generation technologies for a wide range of high performance products in key areas like gaming, immersive platforms and data center.
” We are focusing our investments on the best opportunities to enable our customers to develop unique products that exceed the border as possible and allow AMD to profitable growth in the coming years. “
Updates of IP technology and core
AMD introduced a series of engineering innovations, including details on the next generation of its x86 processor cores and ARM 64-bit graphics cores expected future provide improved performance per watt double., the current generation, advanced modular design methodology reducing SoC development costs (System on Chip) and accelerates time to market
The technology-related announcements were:
- Development of a new x86 processor core codenamed “Zen”, with which AMD hopes to enter the markets of desktop and high performance servers through improved instructions per clock cycle up to 40% of the current core x86 processor, AMD. “Zen” will also feature simultaneous multithreading capabilities (SMT) for increased performance and a new cache subsystem.
- Updates to the first ARM core 64-bit custom company, the core “K12”. These 64-bit ARM core enterprise class are designed for efficiency and are ideal for loads of work and integrated server.
- AMD plans to extend its leadership in graphics technology by delivering the first graphics processing unit (GPU) for high performance in the industry with High Bandwidth Memory (HBM) on the wafer using a silicon interposer design 2.5D. AMD plans to present this innovative solution this year with its latest GPU.
Besides talking about software, security and platforms, AMD said its new network technology chip (NoC) high performance, a modular design that makes reusable building blocks IP to maximize design efficiency. It is expected that this innovative design reduces the cost and time to market for future products both standard and semi-custom AMD.
” We are doubling our investments in IP according to our strengths of traditional development to address key market needs for performance and options across CPU cores x86 and ARM 64-bit high performance, scalable and our continued leadership in graphics “said Mark Papermaster, senior vice president and chief technology officer at AMD. ” We have also developed a system for modular design around our new NoC technology designed to greatly speed development . ”
Moreover, AMD announced updates to its product plans Computing and Graphics (CG) in the areas of unit accelerated processing (APU), central processing unit (CPU) and GPU products, which are planned for launch in 2016. The next products address the key customer priorities, including higher performance, longer battery life and better efficiency energy. AMD also offered more details and made a public demonstration of its APU Series A 6th generation, known by the code name “Carrizo” and its offer next-generation GPU to be launched in the coming months.
Upgrades to business segments, integrated and semi-custom products
AMD detailed its long-term strategy for the Enterprise Business Group, Integrated and semi-custom products (EESC), which focuses on growth in several markets by leveraging high priority CPU cores and high-performance GPU, which enable customers to develop differentiated solutions.
” The modular design methodology of high performance IP AMD and its evolved business model for semi-custom products generate significant growth opportunities in multiple markets , “said Forrest Norrod, executive vice president and general manager EESC.
The short-term strategy is to create scalable and solve semi-custom and drive the growth of integrated product line. In the future, the “Zen” and “K12” next-generation high-performance cores provide the data center, an area where AMD plans to recover involvement with a portfolio that includes x86 and ARM processors, greater energy efficiency and a renewed presence x86 server market high performance.
” In addition to driving sustained growth in our business and integrated semi-custom products, we have reaffirmed our commitment to the computation of high-performance server thanks to our robust set of new product offerings. “
The product line includes in AMD EESC:
- The AMD Opteron ™ next generation based on the “Zen” core server processors enable a broader workload with substantial increases in E / S and memory capacity range.
- Based on the anticipated availability based on “Seattle” systems later this year, AMD announced plans for its next-generation ARM core processors with “K12”
- AMD also offered a look at its new high-performance APU aimed at HPC market and workstations, which is expected to provide massive improvements in vector applications through scalable graphics performance, activation of HSA and memory architecture optimized.
