AMD Congratulates Microsoft on the RTM Milestone of Windows 7

 

  • AMD (NYSE: AMD) today congratulates Microsoft Corp. on the Release-to-Manufacturing of the Windows 7 operating system.
  • Working with Microsoft, AMD has focused on addressing customers’ top computing priorities such as superior visual experience, better PC entertainment, a stable platform and great power management technology to help Microsoft deliver an outstanding, dynamic Windows 7 environment for consumers and businesses alike.
  • Benefiting from a six-year collaboration between Microsoft and AMD, Windows 7 is designed to exploit the power of AMD mainstream multi-core and 64-bit microprocessor technology along with advanced 3D and video processing solutions to deliver a more visual, more entertaining, more powerful and richer computing experience on a stable and consistent platform.
  • The compute shader, a feature of DirectX 11, will enable upcoming AMD DirectX 11 graphics cards used in Windows-7 capable systems to speed up a wide number of Windows 7 applications in a manner that’s completely transparent to users. For example, in seamlessly accelerating the conversion of video for playback on portable media players through a drag-and-drop interface.1
  • AMD Business Class Technology and Windows 7 help drive business productivity with exceptional experience on visual applications such as Microsoft Office PowerPoint, video conferencing, and 3-D productivity. Additionally, AMD-V™, a feature on all AMD Phenom™, AMD Phenom™ II, AMD Turion™, AMD Athlon™ and AMD Athlon™ II processors, provides hardware virtualization support to help streamline PC management through Windows 7 Virtual PC and Windows XP mode. The reduction in overall power consumption enabled by AMD Business Class and Windows 7 helps extend battery and system life.
