Markham, Ontario --
Supercom is excited to announce a brand new era for Touch systems. The award-winning brand featuring the AMD AthlonTM 64 processor is now available from Supercom to resellers across Canada. Now, Touch Systems’ resellers can offer gaming and digital media enthusiasts all the advantages that come with the world’s first and only Windows-compatible 64-bit desktop processor.
“With AMD Athlon 64 processors, our powerful white box solutions can now offer the best of both worlds,” said Mrs. Florence Chow, senior product manager at Supercom. “Each system we build will harnesses great potential for the future, but still allow people to keep their current software. This will put a lot of consumers at ease if they know they don’t have to put out a lot of money for new software when they upgrade. We’ve been building Touch for almost 15 years now and this truly is a great milestone in the systems’ very positive history.”
“The AMD Athlon 64 processor is built on the AMD64 architecture, which extends industry-standard x86, and offers simultaneous 32-bit and 64-bit application support while enabling investment protection and lower total cost of ownership for both home and business users,” said Tim Wright, director, desktop marketing, AMD’s Computation Products Group. “Supercom customers can now have the flexibility and breakthrough performance offered by the AMD Athlon 64 processor.”
