AMD Delivers Hammer Technology Resources At AMD Developer Symposium
AMD offers sneak preview of AMD Developer Center, a dedicated resource for hardware and software partners—
SUNNYVALE, CA. --
At the AMD Developer Symposium, AMD (NYSE: AMD) today joined with Linux partners to help further the development of their 64-bit computing platforms.
The symposium, which focuses on the Linux and open source software and hardware development communities, is taking place today and tomorrow at AMD’s world headquarters in Sunnyvale. Developers are participating in a range of technical presentations on the upcoming AMD processors based on Hammer technology.
Featured presenter Nathan Brookwood, principal analyst at Insight 64, discussed the future of 64-bit computing and its impact for the enterprise.
“64-bit computing increases in importance as system memory configurations expand beyond four gigabytes,” Brookwood observed. “Linux-based server shipments are increasing at a faster rate than any other server environment, and the Linux community will play an important role in driving the growth of 64-bit systems.”
In addition to AMD, IBM, MigraTEC, Numerical Algorithms Group (NAG), The SCO Group, STMicroelectronics, and UnitedLinux are presenting on a range of topics relating to Linux on the x86-64 technology-based platform.
AMD also provided tours of its soon-to-be-opened AMD Developer Center, a dedicated resource that provides software and hardware developers access to AMD’s technical expertise and systems based on Hammer technology. AMD technology partners will be able to access the center for development and testing of a full range of products and software, reducing the time and resources needed to realize 64-bit performance power.
AMD’s upcoming 64-bit processors based on Hammer technology will extend AMD’s long, rich history of semiconductor solutions based on customer-centric innovations. They are designed to provide a smooth migration path from 32- to 64-bit technology, 32-bit backwards compatibility, investment protection, and a lower cost of ownership. AMD processors based on Hammer technology also will provide beneficial technology to the enterprise by innovating with open standards, compatibility, and businesses’ best interests in mind.
AMD also plans to host two additional symposiums for developers internationally. The first will be held Oct. 29 and Oct. 30 in Frankfurt; the second will be held Dec. 4 and Dec. 5 in Beijing.
