AMD Announces Major Technology Partnerships at Future of Compute Event

During Event Key­notes, Sam­sung Shows Upco­m­ing Line of Free­Sync-Enab­led Ultra High-Defi­ni­ti­on Dis­plays and Cap­com Announ­ces Eva­lua­ti­on of AMD Mant­le API

SINGAPORE — (Mar­ket­wired) — 11/20/14 — AMD (NYSE: AMD) today at its Future of Com­pu­te event announ­ced the intro­duc­tion of the con­su­mer elec­tro­nic industry’s first-ever ultra high-defi­ni­ti­on (UHD) moni­tors to fea­ture its inno­va­ti­ve, open-stan­dards based Free­Sync tech­no­lo­gy. Sam­sung Elec­tro­nics Co., Ltd., plans to launch the screen syn­ching tech­no­lo­gy around the world in March 2015, star­ting with the Sam­sung UD590 (23.6‑inch and 28-inch models) and UE850 (23.6‑inch, 27-inch and 31.5‑inch models), and even­tual­ly across all of Samsung’s UHD lin­eu­ps. Free­Sync will enab­le dyna­mic refresh rates syn­chro­ni­zed to the frame rate of AMD Rade­on™ gra­phics cards and APUs to maxi­mal­ly redu­ce input laten­cy and redu­ce or ful­ly eli­mi­na­te visu­al defects during gaming and video playback.

We are very plea­sed to adopt AMD Free­Sync tech­no­lo­gy to our 2015 Sam­sung Elec­tro­nics Visu­al Dis­play division’s UHD moni­tor road­map, which ful­ly sup­ports open stan­dards,” said Joe Chan, Vice Pre­si­dent of Sam­sung Elec­tro­nics Sou­the­ast Asia Head­quar­ters. “With this tech­no­lo­gy, we belie­ve users inclu­ding gamers will be able to enjoy their vide­os and games to be play­ed with smoot­her frame dis­play without stut­te­ring or tea­ring on their monitors.”

In addi­ti­on, Cap­com announ­ced its col­la­bo­ra­ti­on with AMD on the AMD Mant­le API to enhan­ce Capcom’s “Pan­ta-Rhei” engi­ne, enab­ling enhan­ced gaming per­for­mance and visu­al qua­li­ty for upco­m­ing Cap­com game titles.

This will impro­ve the per­for­mance of our ‘Pan­ta-Rhei’ engi­ne, which was ori­gi­nal­ly deve­lo­ped for con­so­le plat­forms,” said Masaru Iju­in, tech­ni­cal direc­tor, Cap­com. “Cap­com is eva­lua­ting AMD’s Mant­le tech­no­lo­gy to help impro­ve the gra­phics pipe­line, and inte­gra­te it into ‘Pan­ta-Rhei’ to pro­vi­de out­stan­ding bene­fits and impres­si­ve per­for­mance for gamers as well as the gaming developers.”

AMD’s Mant­le API tech­no­lo­gy has been adop­ted by major deve­lo­pers inclu­ding Crytek’s CRYENGINE®, DICE’s Frost­Bi­te 3 and Oxide’s Nitrous engine.

Sam­sung and Cap­com are stra­te­gic part­ners in hel­ping us bring our revo­lu­tio­na­ry IP and tech­no­lo­gy to the homes and offices of con­su­mers around the world,” said David Ben­nett, cor­po­ra­te vice pre­si­dent, AMD APJ. “As we expand our pro­duct influ­ence in the com­mer­cial sec­tor, we belie­ve open stan­dard tech­no­lo­gies like AMD Free­Sync and soft­ware advan­ce­ments like our Mant­le API will play inte­gral roles in dri­ving the indus­try forward.”

The Future of Com­pu­te event kicked off with the addi­ti­on of the high per­for­mance pro­ces­sor code­n­a­med “Car­ri­zo” and main­stream pro­ces­sor code­n­a­med “Carrizo‑L” SoCs to the company’s mobi­le Acce­le­ra­ted Pro­ces­sing Unit (APU) pro­duct road­map. Desi­gned as com­ple­te solu­ti­ons for con­su­mers loo­king to acce­le­ra­te gaming and pro­duc­ti­vi­ty app­li­ca­ti­ons and enab­le UHD 4K expe­ri­en­ces, the­se latest mobi­le APUs are sche­du­led to ship in 1H 2015, with lap­top and All-in-One sys­tems expec­ted in mar­ket by mid-year 2015.
