AMD Achieves Leading Market Share for Thin Clients

AMD Achieves Leading Market Share for Thin Clients

Recent Win with HP Adds to Mar­ket Momentum 

Sun­ny­va­le, Cali­for­nia — Decem­ber 9, 2015 — AMD (NASDAQ:AMD) announ­ced that the com­pa­ny achie­ved a num­ber one mar­ket share posi­ti­on for thin cli­ents based on its thin-cli­ent ship­ments. Accord­ing to its unit sales to thin cli­ent cus­to­mers last year, AMD has more than half of that mar­ket, with 53 per­cent mar­ket share.1

Thin cli­ents, with litt­le or no local sto­rage, often ser­ve as intel­li­gent front-ends for ser­ver or cloud-based app­li­ca­ti­ons. Thin cli­ents using AMD Embed­ded G‑Series have a strong value pro­po­si­ti­on for immer­si­ve gra­phics in sin­gle- or mul­ti-dis­play con­fi­gu­ra­ti­ons in the enter­pri­se. Recent design wins with HP, Fuji­tsu, and Sam­sung vali­da­te that AMD APUs pro­vi­de com­pel­ling value with hor­se­power for data move­ment, encryption/decryption of cen­tral ser­ver data, and even video encode/decode for video con­fe­ren­cing or mul­ti­me­dia streaming.

The AMD Embed­ded G‑Series SoC cou­ples high per­for­mance com­pu­te and gra­phics capa­bi­li­ty in a high­ly inte­gra­ted low power design,” said Scott Aylor, cor­po­ra­te vice pre­si­dent and gene­ral mana­ger, AMD Enter­pri­se Solu­ti­ons. “The­se pro­ces­sors pro­vi­de com­pel­ling per­for­mance per dol­lar per watt, strong secu­ri­ty, sophisti­ca­ted power manage­ment, and supe­ri­or gra­phics per­for­mance. The pro­duct lin­eup inclu­des an unpar­al­leled ran­ge of pin- and soft­ware-com­pa­ti­ble offe­rings, hel­ping to address mul­ti­ple needs of our customers.”

AMD G‑Series SOC Ide­al for Thin Cli­ent Applications

AMD thin cli­ent solu­ti­ons con­ti­nue to gain mar­ket adop­ti­on becau­se of the move to cloud-based com­pu­ting. Incre­a­singly, thin cli­ents are also being used for more com­plex and high per­for­mance tasks. This is espe­cial­ly true for devices incor­po­ra­ting x86 CPUs and sophisti­ca­ted gra­phics. The sur­ge of inno­va­ti­on in the desk­top vir­tua­liz­a­ti­on mar­ket has crea­ted new oppor­tu­nities for power­ful thin cli­ents that are now capa­ble of exe­cu­ting deman­ding tasks inclu­ding com­pu­ter-aided design and 3D mode­ling. Cus­to­mers are also using AMD thin cli­ent solu­ti­ons in finan­cial and government ser­vices, call cen­ters, kiosks, and hos­pi­tals, “smart” moni­tors and other mul­ti-user, vir­tua­li­zed installations.

The AMD G‑Series SoC also fea­tures enhan­ced secu­ri­ty for enter­pri­se IT ope­ra­ti­ons, enab­ling secu­ri­ty bet­ween the thin cli­ent and the ser­ver, and allowing only soft­ware appro­ved by an enterprise’s IT orga­niz­a­ti­on to run on the thin cli­ent device. It also sup­ports enhan­ced power manage­ment tech­no­lo­gy to help mana­ge ener­gy cos­ts and envi­ron­men­tal impact across lar­ge deployments.

About AMD

For more than 45 years AMD has dri­ven inno­va­ti­on in high-per­for­mance com­pu­ting, gra­phics, and visua­liz­a­ti­on tech­no­lo­gies ― the buil­ding blocks for gaming, immer­si­ve plat­forms, and the dat­a­cen­ter. Hund­reds of mil­li­ons of con­su­mers, lea­ding For­tu­ne 500 busi­nes­ses, and cut­ting-edge sci­en­ti­fic rese­arch faci­li­ties around the world rely on AMD tech­no­lo­gy dai­ly to impro­ve how they live, work, and play. AMD employees around the world are focu­sed on buil­ding gre­at pro­ducts that push the bounda­ries of what is pos­si­ble.
