Radeon™ Graphics Branding
The new AMD Radeon™ HD 6000M Series – Passing the Torch of Success from ATI.
ATI and AMD have been one company for almost four years and the time is ripe to take the relationship to the next level.
Like all good unions, AMD and ATI are stronger together and consolidating under the AMD master brand is a perfect way of embracing the moment represented by the culmination of the dream that brought the two companies together. Providing one consistent brand will make the customer buying experience simpler and leveraging the strength of product brands like Radeon™ will help make AMD an even stronger brand in the heart and mind of the consumer.
Building on the momentum of AMD’s success as the overall leader in the discrete graphics marketshare, we believe there couldn’t be a better time to drive our decision to make this branding change. This means you will start to see "AMD Radeon™" branded notebook graphics products starting with the next generation AMD Radeon™ HD 6000M Series graphics.
In essence, the new AMD Radeon™ HD 6000M Series carries on the highly successful legacy from the ATI Mobility Radeon™ family that has heralded a new era of mobile visual computing experience for our customers. With the AMD Radeon™ HD 6000M Series, customers will also enjoy a host of new features that will enrich their on-the-go visual experience:
