AMD drops new components
AMD, Intel’s perennial rival, has just introduced a bunch of new components with the next-generation AMD Phenom quad-core processor leading the way, followed by the ATI Radeon HD 3800 series graphics processors and AMD 7-Series chipsets. These new developments have already received backing from industry leading components such as AsRock, Asus, Biostar, Club 3D, DFI, Diamond Multimedia, ECS, Foxconn, Gigabyte, HIS, Info-Tek, Jetway, J&W, MSI, NVIDIA, Micron Technology, Palit Multimedia, PCPartner, Qimonda, Samsung Semiconductor, Sapphire, Tul, Visiontek and Uabit, bringing together a synergy never seen before where high-quality HD resolution, responsive performance, and energy efficiency are concerned.
The AMD Phenom quad-core processor, needless to say, is the most advanced AMD desktop PC processor to date – capable of commanding a quartet of natively integrated processor cores in order to break system bandwidth barriers while inducing a turbo charged performance. Features include AMD CoolCore technology, support for a split power plane motherboard design and the ability to set independent core frequencies. As for the ATI Radeon HD 3800 series, this new line of video cards aim to provide gamers with the best bang for their buck by boasting greater energy efficiency than the previous generation without skimping on performance thanks to the 55nm process technology used in manufacturing it. You can also support up to four GPUs for Windows Vista thanks to ATI CrossFireX. As for the AMD 7-Series chipsets, these work great for overclockers as well as PC enthusiasts, since AMD’s OverDrive software is touted to be the most powerful and intuitive Windows operating system-based performance tuning utility to date.
Just in case you’re wondering whether system integrators have faith in AMD’s Spider, here’s a rather comprehensive list to begin with – ABS, Aidata, Altech, Bas-Mycom, B-Com, CDC, Cyber Power, Compuzone, Comtrade, Depo, Falcon Northwest, Formoza, iBUYPOWER, Icoda, K-Trade, Mesh, Oktabit, PV Tech, Thirdwave Corporation, Tsukomo K.K., Unit Com K.K., Velocity Micro and Unit Com.
