PC-Doctor Announces Support For AMD Opteron™ Processors
PC-Doctor rounds out support for AMD64 Solutions
EMERYVILLE, CA --
PC-Doctor®, Inc., a leading global developer of hardware diagnostic and system information tools, announced today that PC Doctor will now test AMD Opteron™ processors and AMD64 solutions to help ensure quality, industry standardization and to reduce product returns.
PC-Doctor’s comprehensive trouble-shooting tools, used by both PC manufacturers and PC component vendors, accurately diagnose problems throughout the entire PC lifecycle from product design to manufacturing, support and service. By using a single set of diagnostics with a common user interface, testing is consistent and PC manufacturers and service organizations can streamline the troubleshooting of failed PC hardware and avoid unnecessary returns of hardware components (also known as No Defect Found returns.)
“PC Doctor is committed to providing diagnostic support for the most current AMD technologies,” said Aki Korhonen, PC Doctor Vice President and Chief Technology Officer. “PC manufacturers and component manufacturers building products based on the 64-bit AMD Opteron™ processor can now enjoy the same comprehensive PC Doctor testing solutions they’re familiar with for 32-bit x86 architectures.”
“AMD has collaborated with PC-Doctor in support of the AMD family of processors. In fact, in 2001 AMD recognized PC Doctor with an AMD Crystal Wafer Award for outstanding support of the AMD platform,” said Rich Heye, vice president and general manager of AMD’s Microprocessor Business Unit. “PC Doctor support for our latest architectures and products, as we introduce a new era in 64-bit computing, will provide our customers with diagnostic and analysis tools required for simplified testing and production.”
