FRANKFURT, GERMANY --
At LinuxWorld Frankfurt, AMD (NYSE: AMD) today announced Rich Heye, AMD vice president of Platform Engineering and Infrastructure, Computation Products Group, will present the keynote address “Bridging the Gap to 64-bit Computing” on Tuesday, Oct. 30.
Heye will discuss Linux for the upcoming AMD Opteron™ and AMD Athlon™ processors based on Hammer technology, and share key points on developing and supporting 32- and 64-bit Linux-based systems and applications. Heye is scheduled to speak from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the main auditorium.
"AMD and the Linux developer community are working together to bridge the gap to provide fast and affordable enterprise solutions for Linux-based 64-bit computing,” said Rich Heye, AMD’s vice president, platform engineering and infrastructure, Computation Products Group. "As data-intensive applications continue to proliferate across all business segments, customers will benefit from the power and scalability of Linux-based applications based on the x86-64 technology-based platform.”
AMD is hosting its second AMD Developer Symposium, an event focused on Linux and open source software and hardware development communities, also on Tuesday, Oct. 30. Developers will participate in a range of technical presentations on creating Linux-based applications for AMD’s upcoming 64-bit technology-based platform.
AMD, as well as MigraTEC, MandrakeSoft, Numerical Algorithms Group (NAG), STMicroelectronics and SuSE, also will present on a range of topics relating to Linux on AMD’s 64-bit technology-based platform at the AMD Developer Symposium.
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.
