AMD Achieves Leading Market Share for Thin Clients

Recent Win with HP Adds to Mar짯ket Momentum 

Sun짯ny짯va짯le, Cali짯for짯nia Decem짯ber 9, 2015 AMD (NASDAQ:AMD) announ짯ced that the com짯pa짯ny achie짯ved a num짯ber one mar짯ket share posi짯ti짯on for thin cli짯ents based on its thin-cli짯ent ship짯ments. Accor짯ding to its unit sales to thin cli짯ent cus짯to짯mers last year, AMD has more than half of that mar짯ket, with 53 per짯cent mar짯ket share.1

Thin cli짯ents, with litt짯le or no local sto짯rage, often ser짯ve as intel짯li짯gent front-ends for ser짯ver or cloud-based appli짯ca짯ti짯ons. Thin cli짯ents using AMD Embedded G멣eries have a strong value pro짯po짯si짯ti짯on for immersi짯ve gra짯phics in sin짯gle- or mul짯ti-dis짯play con짯fi짯gu짯ra짯ti짯ons in the enter짯pri짯se. Recent design wins with HP, Fuji짯tsu, and Sam짯sung vali짯da짯te that AMD APUs pro짯vi짯de com짯pel짯ling value with hor짯se짯power for data move짯ment, encryption/decryption of cen짯tral ser짯ver data, and even video encode/decode for video con짯fe짯ren짯cing or mul짯ti짯me짯dia streaming.

The AMD Embedded G멣eries SoC cou짯ples high per짯for짯mance com짯pu짯te and gra짯phics capa짯bi짯li짯ty in a high짯ly inte짯gra짯ted low power design, said Scott Aylor, cor짯po짯ra짯te vice pre짯si짯dent and gene짯ral mana짯ger, AMD Enter짯pri짯se Solu짯ti짯ons. 쏷he짯se pro짯ces짯sors pro짯vi짯de com짯pel짯ling per짯for짯mance per dol짯lar per watt, strong secu짯ri짯ty, sophisti짯ca짯ted power manage짯ment, and supe짯ri짯or gra짯phics per짯for짯mance. The pro짯duct lin짯e짯up includes an unpar짯al짯le짯led ran짯ge of pin- and soft짯ware-com짯pa짯ti짯ble offe짯rings, hel짯ping to address mul짯ti짯ple needs of our customers.

AMD G멣eries SOC Ide짯al for Thin Cli짯ent Applications

AMD thin cli짯ent solu짯ti짯ons con짯ti짯nue to gain mar짯ket adop짯ti짯on becau짯se of the move to cloud-based com짯pu짯ting. Incre짯asing짯ly, thin cli짯ents are also being used for more com짯plex and high per짯for짯mance tasks. This is espe짯ci짯al짯ly true for devices incor짯po짯ra짯ting x86 CPUs and sophisti짯ca짯ted gra짯phics. The sur짯ge of inno짯va짯ti짯on in the desk짯top vir짯tua짯liza짯ti짯on mar짯ket has crea짯ted new oppor짯tu짯ni짯ties for powerful thin cli짯ents that are now capa짯ble of exe짯cu짯ting deman짯ding tasks inclu짯ding com짯pu짯ter-aided design and 3D mode짯ling. Cus짯to짯mers are also using AMD thin cli짯ent solu짯ti짯ons in finan짯cial and govern짯ment ser짯vices, call cen짯ters, kiosks, and hos짯pi짯tals, 쐓mart moni짯tors and other mul짯ti-user, vir짯tua짯li짯zed installations.

The AMD G멣eries SoC also fea짯tures enhan짯ced secu짯ri짯ty for enter짯pri짯se IT ope짯ra짯ti짯ons, enab짯ling secu짯ri짯ty bet짯ween the thin cli짯ent and the ser짯ver, and allo짯wing only soft짯ware appro짯ved by an enterprise셲 IT orga짯niza짯ti짯on to run on the thin cli짯ent device. It also sup짯ports enhan짯ced power manage짯ment tech짯no짯lo짯gy to help mana짯ge ener짯gy cos짯ts and envi짯ron짯men짯tal impact across lar짯ge deployments.
