AMD Fusion APUs accelerate more than 50 software apps

AMD has announced growing support from the PC software community with more than 50 mainstream applications currently accelerated by the new AMD Fusion Family of Accelerated Processing Units (APUs).

The groundbreaking AMD Fusion APUs, available in PCs since early this year, help remove hardware barriers to allow software developers to deliver the most immersive computing experience possible.

Leading software companies including Adobe, ArcSoft, Corel, CyberLink and Microsoft offer applications that demonstrate exceptional visual performance, power efficiency and speed on PCs that are powered by AMD Fusion APUs as a result of such features as stutter-free HD video playback, breakthroughs in computational horsepower to handle the most demanding applications, DirectX 11-capable graphics and all-day battery life.[2] AMD Fusion APUs, including the currently available AMD C-Series, E-Series and Embedded G-Series processors, accelerate applications ranging from video creation and playback, to 3D graphics and DirectX11 games.

“The huge number of applications that are ideally suited to benefit from the performance and stunning graphics offered by AMD Fusion processors is testament to our close collaboration with leading software developers,” said John Taylor, director of Client Product and Software Marketing, AMD. “We anticipate doubling the number of applications in the next few months as we approach the launch of the A-Series ‘Llano’ APU, the next member of the AMD Fusion family that is designed to enable more than 500 GFLOPs of parallel processing power in mainstream notebooks and desktops.”

Although some developers are skilled at leveraging parallel programming for highperformance computing applications, most mainstream PC software previously has been limited to relying on either the CPU or GPU. AMD Fusion APUs help remove these limitations by incorporating multi-core CPU (x86) technology, a powerful DirectX®11-capable discrete-level graphics and parallel processing engine, a dedicated high-definition video acceleration block, and a high-speed bus – all on a single die. This design brings supercomputer-like performance to everyday computing tasks to allow applications to take full advantage of the available processing power of both the CPU and GPU, and do so faster than previous designs in the same class.

"Whether you're making an HD movie or watching one, you want great software powered by a processor that offers the speed, responsiveness and battery life you need to accomplish your goals," said Shawn Cadeau, senior vice president, Global Marketing, Corel. "By taking advantage of the advances forged by AMD Fusion APUs, Corel software products like WinDVD and VideoStudio Pro X4 will provide consumers with a more immersive, enjoyable and creative video experience. AMD is a great partner and we look forward to continuing to work together to break down barriers and drive consumer adoption of video on the PC."

“The visual performance that consumers can experience when running our PowerDVD application on APU-powered systems is nothing short of stunning, due in large part to the DirectX 11-capable graphics, AMD’s Unified Video Decoder and HD 2.0 features of the APU,” said Alice H. Chang, chief executive officer of CyberLink. “We’re excited to work side-by-side with AMD to deliver this unparalleled computing experience and anticipate consumers to embrace the evolution of PC technology.”
