AMD Technologies

Posted: July 22, 2009 in Discover Technology

AMD has a proud history of bringing innovations to the marketplace that benefit end-users and customers alike. From the Direct Connect architecture to focused design optimizations for energy efficiency, AMD technology ignites the next generation of desktops, notebooks, servers and game consoles.

Optimization for Cloud Computing

An essential component of any cloud computing environment is servers equipped with processors that deliver a balance of performance, I/O capabilities, low energy consumption, and hardware-assisted virtualization. AMD Opteron™ processors can help organizations optimize data center performance and cost-effectiveness to serve their cloud customers.


AMD has led the industry in developing features for x86-based computers that enable fast and efficient virtualization, such as energy efficient multi-core processors, advanced memory handling capabilities, and hardware-based virtualization technologies.

ATI Stream Technology

ATI Stream technology is a set of advanced hardware and software technologies that enable AMD graphics processors (GPU), working in concert with the system’s central processor (CPU), to accelerate many applications beyond graphics.

Power Efficiency

When server efficiency matters, it’s not enough to compare spec sheets. AMD delivers power efficiency at real-world workloads. Specific power innovations include AMD Cool’n’Quiet Technology and ATI PowerPlay™, delivering proven, measurable benefits for businesses and consumers, reducing power usage, lowering energy costs and lessening the environmental impact.

HyperTransport™ Technology

HyperTransport technology is a high-speed, low latency, point-to-point link designed to increase the communication speed between integrated circuits in computers, servers, embedded systems, and networking and telecommunications equipment up to 48 times faster than some existing technologies.

AMD64 Technology

The AMD64 platform led the industry to pervasive 64-bit computing.
Direct Connect Architecture
Direct Connect Architecture improves overall system performance and efficiency by eliminating traditional bottlenecks inherent in legacy front side bus architectures.

Multi-Core Processing with AMD

With the power of two, four or more processor cores on a single chip, AMD’s true multi-core processors deliver industry-leading performance and unique features that help systems run cooler and more efficient.
