AMD stellt innovative 14nm FinFET Polaris GPU Architektur vor

— Weltweit erste Präsentation von 14nm FinFET PC GPU Technologie für bis zu doppelt so hohe Leistung pro Watt im Vergleich zu früheren Generationen[i]; Samples gehen jetzt zu OEMs —

Las Vegas, USA. — CES 2016 – 4. Januar 2016 — Auf der CES 2016 stellt AMD seine neue Polaris Architektur für die 2016er Radeon GPUs in einer Preview vor. Die Highlights umfassen zahlreiche deutliche Architektur-Verbesserungen – einschließlich HDR Monitor Support und branchenführender Leistung pro Watt. Die ersten auf der Polaris Architektur basierenden GPUs können voraussichtlich Mitte 2016 geliefert werden.

AMDs 14nm FinFET GPUs, die auf der Polaris Architektur basieren, bieten einen erheblichen Entwicklungssprung hinsichtlich Energieeffizienz. Die auf der Polaris Architektur basierenden GPUs wurden für flüssige Bildfrequenzen bei Grafik, Gaming, VR und Multimedia Anwendungen entwickelt, die auf dünnen und leichten Small Form Factor Computer Designs laufen.

Dazu sagt Lisa Su, President and CEO von AMD: „Unsere neue Polaris Architektur bietet bedeutende Fortschritte bezüglich Performance, Energieeffizienz und Features. 2016 wird ein spannendes Jahr für Radeon Fans – dafür sorgen die AMD Polaris Architektur, die Radeon Software Crimson Edition sowie eine Reihe von anderen zukünftigen Innovationen der Radeon Technologies Group.“

Die neue Architektur beinhaltet AMDs vierte Generation der Graphics Core Next-Architektur (GCN), ein Display-Engine der nächsten Generation mit Support für HDMI 2.0a und Display Port 1.3 sowie Next-Generation-Multimedia Funktionen einschließlich 4K h.265 Kodierung und Dekodierung. AMD kann eine langjährige Erfolgsbilanz bei der Verbesserung der Energieeffizienz seiner mobilen Prozessoren vorweisen. Bis zum Jahr 2020  strebt das Unternehmen eine weitere 25-fache Verbesserung an[ii].

This press release contains forward-looking statements concerning Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (“AMD”), including, the features and functionality of AMD’s 2016 Polaris GPU architecture; the timing of shipments of Polaris architecture-based GPUs; that AMD’s Polaris architecture will be based on a 14nm FinFET node;  the features and functionalities of Polaris architecture-based GPUs,  including performance and power efficiency benefits to help evolve and compress desktop PC form factors and acoustics and fuel thin-and-light notebooks; the future success and customer appeal of AMD Radeon™ graphics products planned for 2016, including products based on Polaris architecture; planned update of AMD Graphics Core Next architecture;  and AMD’s goal to improve energy efficiency of its mobile processors by the year 2020; which are made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.  Forward-looking terminology including “believes,” “expects,” “may,” “will,” “should,” “seeks,” “intends,” “plans,” “pro forma,” “estimates,” “anticipates,” or the negative of these words and phrases, other variations of these words and phrases or comparable terminology. Investors are cautioned that the forward-looking statements in this press release are based on current beliefs, assumptions and expectations, speak only as of the date of this document and involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations. Material factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations include, without limitation, the following: Intel Corporation’s dominance of the microprocessor market and its aggressive business practices may limit AMD’s ability to compete effectively; AMD relies on GLOBALFOUNDRIES Inc. (GF) to manufacture most of its microprocessor and APU products and certain of its GPU and semi-custom products. If GF is not able to satisfy AMD’s manufacturing requirements, its business could be adversely impacted; AMD relies on third parties to manufacture its products, and if they are unable to do so on a timely basis in sufficient quantities and using competitive technologies, AMD’s business could be materially adversely affected; failure to achieve expected manufacturing yields for AMD’s products could negatively impact its financial results; the success of AMD’s business is dependent upon its ability to introduce products on a timely basis with features and performance levels that provide value to its customers while supporting and coinciding with significant industry transitions; if AMD cannot generate sufficient revenue and operating cash flow or obtain external financing, it may face a cash shortfall and be unable to make all of its planned investments in research and development or other strategic investments; the loss of a significant customer may have a material adverse effect on AMD;  global economic uncertainty may adversely impact AMD’s business and operating results; AMD may not be able to generate sufficient cash to service its debt obligations or meet its working capital requirements; AMD has a substantial amount of indebtedness which could adversely affect its financial position and prevent it from implementing its strategy or fulfilling its contractual obligations; the agreements governing AMD’s notes and its secured revolving line of credit (Secured Revolving Line of Credit) impose restrictions on AMD that may adversely affect its ability to operate its business; the completion and impact of AMD’s restructuring plan announced in October 2015, its transformation initiatives and any future restructuring actions could adversely affect it; the markets in which AMD’s products are sold are highly competitive; and uncertainties involving the ordering and shipment of AMD’s products could materially adversely affect it. Investors are urged to review in detail the risks and uncertainties in AMD’s Securities and Exchange Commission filings, including but not limited to AMD’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 26, 2015.
