1. AMD Gesture Control is designed to enable gesture recognition as a tool for controlling certain applications on your PC. Only available on select AMD A-Series APU-based tablets and notebooks. Requires a web camera, and will only operate on PCs running Windows 7 or Windows 8 operating system. Supported Windows desktop apps include: Windows Media Player, Windows Photo Viewer, Microsoft PowerPoint and Adobe Acrobat Reader.

2. Testing performed by AMD performance labs measuring the accuracy in eyeSight’s Gesture Recognition Technology (optimized for and offered by AMD with certain AMD APUs under the name “AMD Gesture Control”) with and without the GPU-accelerated low light filters for a series of mouse control commands performed at a distance of 12 inches from the web camera on the test PC in a low light (~30 lux) environment. A notebook PC with upcoming AMD A10-5750M APU codenamed “Richland” with AMD Radeon™ HD 8650G, 4GB of DDR3-1600 (dual channel) RAM, Microsoft Windows 8 (64-bit) Build 9200, video driver 126.96.36.199 - 12/06/2012 without the low light filters achieved 17% accuracy on average compared to an average of 95% accuracy with the low light filters. A notebook PC with Intel Core i5-3210 with Intel HD 4000 graphics, 4GB of DDR3-1333 (dual channel) RAM, Microsoft Windows 8 (64-bit) Build 9200, video driver 188.8.131.5275 - 10/17/2012 had 0% accuracy (gesture recognition did not work at all) without the low light filter technology. Furthermore, the low light filters would not run on Intel processors at the time of the test 1/4/2013. RIN-6
