AMD introduced its 2010 desktop platform, featuring Athlon II and Phenom II processors, 7-series and 8-series based motherboards, and Radeon HD 5000 series graphics cards.
AMD’s new mainstream and enthusiast desktop platforms are designed to deliver superior performance while alleviating unnecessary spending associated with competing platforms. The new platforms are enhanced with the latest graphics technology for stunning HD digital media and immersive 3D entertainment, and multi-core performance for seamless multi-tasking, including the new six-core AMD Phenom™ II X6 processor. Examples of the benefits the platforms provide to consumers include the following:
* Share movies with friends 30 percent faster than with comparable competing PCs.
* Organize digital libraries 40 percent faster, using facial recognition to categorize photos, than competing desktop PCs.
* Build a complete AMD-based system featuring the AMD Phenom™ II X6 processor with all the necessary components and monitor for less than the price of our competition’s only six-core desktop processor.
Systems featuring these notebook and desktop platforms with VISION Technology from AMD will be available beginning today and through the end of the year from original equipment manufacturers (OEM) and System Integrators including Acer, ASUS, Dell, HP, Lenovo, MSI and Toshiba.
