After romping up domestic consumer markets with speedy and reliable processors and chipsets, Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) now seeks to tap the corporate pulse by improving the quality of high-definition videos and 3D graphics for gadgets in casinos and hospitals.
The American multinational firm hopes the new R-series processor will be a perfect follow-up of the A-series Trinity APUs that gave Intel’s Ivy Bridge processors a run for their money.
The new processor is advertised as a reliable solution to tricky computing and common video-related issues. Besides, it can also ensure faster response times for running a number of applications on medical imaging and infotainment.
Keeping track with the latest developments in digital signage and surveillance, AMD has come up with a processor which is empowered with intelligent analytical skills capable of speedy processing of relevant information.
Built on the Piledriver architecture, the R-series CPU is compatible with DirectX 11-capable Radeon HD 7000 series graphics core. Programmed to run using up to 35 watts of power, the processor is not too harsh on monthly energy bills either.
The R-series chipsets are also being explored for casino gaming apps by firms such as Quixant and Advantech-Innocore. Axiomtek is using the same technology to build Mini-ITX motherboards used in robotics.
Thanks to the inclusion of specialised graphics chips, the new R-series processors can be an instant hit among avid gamers, according to AMD. The company said yesterday in a statement that the new series will be able to run some of the most graphically high-end games currently available on the market.
