This desktop PC series has been designed specifically for PC users looking to maximize productivity and deliver a true-to-life digital entertainment experience.

Designed for a broad range of demanding customers, the systems offer outstanding performance for the 32-bit software of today while preparing for a seamless transition to the 64-bit applications of tomorrow.
“The AMD processor-based Lenovo Feng Xing V series home computer is the result of AMD and Lenovo cooperating in response to customers’ demands for exceptional multimedia capabilities on 32-bit processors while paving the way for 64-bit computing,” said Daryl Sartain, director, desktop product marketing, Microprocessor Business Unit, Computation Products Group at AMD. “As one of the world’s premier PC manufacturers, Lenovo enjoys remarkable brand recognition with strong R&D resources, outstanding marketing and an excellent channel and service network. Lenovo’s extensive local resources, together with AMD technology, are bringing world-class products to China’s users, providing them with the opportunity to experience first-hand the excitement of an immersive digital entertainment experience.

The combination of these two provides an outstanding choice for broadband Internet users. I believe establishing a value chain with a chip manufacturer, a PC manufacturer, and an Internet access and content service provider will help promote the further development of China’s broadband business.”
