-- Dual Processor System Features Forthcoming AMD-760™ MP Chipset for Enterprise Computing --
SAN JOSE, CA --
AMD today reached a new milestone with the first public demonstration of a multiprocessor computer designed specifically to work with AMD processors. The demonstration, at the 2000 Microprocessor Forum, consisted of a computer powered by dual AMD Athlon™ processors, the AMD-760™ MP chipset, and next-generation Double Data Rate (DDR) memory. The multiprocessing computer demonstration featured 3D Studio Max, a professional 3D design and modeling application capable of increasing system performance by using both processors simultaneously.
"Today's demonstration brings AMD one step closer to enable our customers to offer next-generation dual processor workstations and servers powered by AMD processors," said Rich Heye, vice president and general manager of AMD's Texas Microprocessor Division. "AMD's dual processor platform is designed to take the extremely successful AMD Athlon processor into the enterprise markets that require multiprocessing workstation and server solutions."
