While AMD may not have executed well recently, they have long been an innovator, and have some interesting products launching and in the planning stages. They’re bringing Crossfire technology to the notebook, even marrying integrated and discrete graphics (PowerXpress). In 2009 will have the first integrated GPU+CPU or APU (Accelerated Processing Unit).
We’re excited to be in Austin, Texas at AMD’s new campus for a day of presentations involving current and evolving technologies from both the marketing folks and engineers. A lot of time will be spent with their new Puma mobile platform. Sessions are also planned for graphic and chipsets, Accelerated Computing, Cinema 2.0, performance and measurements, and a facility tour. We’ll be bringing detailed articles and images in future days.
