Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. operates as a semiconductor company worldwide. The company primarily offers x86 microprocessors, as a central processing unit (CPU) or as incorporated into an accelerated processing unit (APU), chipsets, and discrete graphics processing units (GPUs) for the consumer, commercial and professional graphics markets; and server and embedded CPUs, GPUs and APUs, and semi-custom system-on-chip (SoC) products and technology for game consoles. x86 Microprocessor and Chipset Products The company’s microprocessors are incorporated into computing platforms, which are a collection of technologies that are designed to work together to provide a computing solution and to enable and advance the computing components. The company bases its microprocessors and chipsets on the x86 instruction set architecture and the company’s Direct Connect Architecture, which connects an on-chip memory controller and input/output channels directly to one or more microprocessor cores. The company typically integrates two or more processor cores onto a single die, and each core has its own dedicated cache, which is memory that is located on the semiconductor die, permitting access to frequently used data and instructions. Some of the company’s microprocessors have additional levels of cache, such as L2 (second-level cache) and L3 (third-level cache) to enable faster data access and higher performance. The company offers CPUs, GPUs, APUs, SoCs, and chipsets with multiple low power states that are designed to utilize lower clock speeds and voltages to reduce processor power consumption during active and idle times. Desktop: The company’s APUs for desktop PCs consist primarily of the AMD A-Series and AMD E-Series APUs. The company also offers AMD FX CPUs for the enthusiast market. The new generation of the company’s AMD FX CPUs is based on the ‘Piledriver’ x86 multi-core architecture. The company’s AMD FX CPUs are designed for multitasking, high resolution gaming and HD media processing and come in eight-, six- and quad-core versions. In May 2015, the company introduced the AMD A-Series A10-7870K APU, a refresh to the existing line of processors, designed to support experiences for eSports and online gaming. In July 2015, the company introduced the AMD A-Series A8-7670K APU, designed to support Windows 10, mainstream workloads and online gaming. Notebook and 2-in-1s: The company continues to invest in designing and developing high performing and low power APUs for notebook PC platforms. The company’s APUs for notebook PCs consist primarily of AMD A-Series APUs and AMD E-Series APUs. These APUs combine discrete-level AMD Radeon graphics, and multi-core CPU processors on a single chip and are designed to optimize performance and energy efficiency. In May 2015, the company introduced the AMD 7000 Series APUs, designed to prolong battery life and enable uninterrupted video streaming in mainstream notebooks. In June 2015, the company announced its 6th Generation A-Series Processor, the world’s first high-performance APU in a SoC design. Leveraging AMD ‘Excavator’ cores and the third generation of the company’s graphics core next architecture, the processor is designed for mainstream notebooks. Chipsets: The company’s portfolio of chipset products includes models with and without integrated graphics features for desktop and notebook PCs and servers, as well as AMD Controller Hub-based chipsets for the company’s APUs. The company offers AMD 9-Series chipsets for the Socket AM3/3+ platforms serving desktop PCs, and AMD A-Series Control Hubs for the Socket FM2/2+ and Socket FP4 platforms for desktop, all-in-one and notebook PCs. The company also offers AMD 785E, 780E, 780M, SR5690, SB600, SB710, SB850, and M690T chipsets; and AMD A-Series controller hubs for the company’s embedded products. Commercial: The company offers enterprise-class solutions sold as AMD PRO for the commercial client market. AMD PRO solutions are designed to provide commercial-grade quality, platform longevity and extended image stability; and also include security and manageability features for enterprise.
