AMD introduced the new 2009 AMD Business Class Desktop Platform, which uses AMD Phenom II and Athlon II 45nm processors, AMD 7-series chipsets and ATI Radeon HD 4000 series GPUs.
AMD Business Class technology is designed to help manage image changes by offering up to a 24-month planned life-cycle on select CPUs from initial availability, incorporating AMD Virtualization™ (AMD-V™) technology, and supporting industry standards like Desktop and Mobile Architecture for System Hardware (DASH) 1.1 for out-of-band manageability and TPM 1.2 for security.
AMD Business Class technology is available today on the HP Compaq 6005 Pro Business PC.
With today’s refresh, AMD Business Class technology now offers AMD DAS 1.0 capabilities in configurations for desktop PCs. AMD DAS is a suite of technologies that enable virtualization and standards-based essential manageability and security with features that don’t lock commercial customers into a single, proprietary technology.
AMD Business Class technology helps drive business productivity with support for Windows Vista® or Windows® 7 by making it easier to manage multiple monitors, run legacy software in virtual XP Mode and take advantage of new graphic enhancements.
AMD Business Class technology delivers energy efficient features designed to help businesses reduce their carbon footprint, minimize processor power consumption, and help save money on energy costs. The new desktop platform features Cool‘n’Quiet™ 2.0 technology to help enable reduced system noise and long PC life.
