SUNNYVALE, CA --
AMD (NYSE: AMD) today announced that its high-performance mobile AMD Athlon™ XP processors will power the new Compaq Evo Notebook N1015v from HP, created specifically to meet the demanding mobility and productivity needs of business, government and education users.
“Our customers are telling us that they need both stand-out performance and true mobility to get their work done quickly and efficiently,” said David Somo, vice president of Worldwide Strategic Accounts for AMD. “To meet those needs, AMD has partnered with HP to deliver the Compaq Evo Notebook N1015v, which combines superior performance and robust features to help businesses run efficiently, no matter where employees are working. AMD is committed to delivering exceptional mobile PC technology to help business users stay connected and work from anywhere-at home, the office or while traveling.”
While business users need performance and mobility, IT managers are asking for ways to do more with fewer resources. AMD designs its mobile processors to meet the needs of both the user and the IT manager. Mobile AMD Athlon XP processors feature AMD PowerNow!™ technology, an advanced power management technology that can help extend the battery life of a notebook computer, enabling anytime, anywhere productivity. IT managers can stretch their shrinking budget dollars with AMD’s Socket A processor interface which lets businesses take advantage of a single PC platform, reducing the need for costly platform changes.
When combined with the additional robust system features provided by Microsoft and ATI, the Compaq Evo N1015v from HP offers outstanding performance and computing power for users on the go.
“In building Windows® XP, Microsoft wanted to give users incredible graphics and a better Internet experience,” said Rogers Weed, vice president of the Windows group at Microsoft Corp. "Windows XP includes integrated support for AMD PowerNow! technology. By working together AMD and Microsoft are enhancing the computing experience and giving IT managers the compatibility and reliability they demand. Optimizing applications for 3DNow!™ Professional results in smoother, richer graphics and audio and a phenomenal Internet experience.”
“ATI’s Radeon IGP 320M delivers smooth, reliable and fast graphics and DVD video for the first time in a cost-effective, integrated-graphics notebook, so users of value-priced commercial notebooks will get the same quality graphics as the industry-leading MOBILITY RADEON family of discrete graphics chips,” said Phil Eisler, vice president and general manager, Mobile and Integrated Business Unit, ATI Technologies Inc. “Radeon IGP 320M also uses a common graphics driver, so IT managers save time by only having to maintain one driver image.”
