AMD Contributes to the Open Compute Project

This server created by Penguin Computing is powered by AMD's Opteron 6300 Series processors and is based on the Open Compute 3.0 spec. The Open Compute Project was led by Facebook in an effort to encourage the development of dense, power-efficient servers.

AMD's Low-Power SeaMicro Microservers

Microservers—highly dense, power-efficient systems—could become a highly contested segment of the server market. Intel is attacking the space with its Atom platform—most recently the release of "Avoton" (for servers) and "Rangeley" (for networking systems)—while AMD is leveraging its acquisition last year of SeaMicro and also is partnering with ARM. Here is a SeaMicro SM15000 Opteron-based system, which offers up to 64 eight-core chips in a single system.

AMD in HP's Project Moonshot Strategy

Hewlett-Packard is building small, highly efficient server modules in its Moonshot initiative. While the first of the Moonshot servers will be powered by Intel Atom chips, the tech giant will leverage other vendors' chips in future versions, including those from AMD and ARM. This Moonshot cartridge is powered by AMD's "Kyoto" Opteron processors.

AMD Finds Its Way Into HP's Notebooks

HP's Envy 15 TouchSmart notebook is powered by an AMD A8-5550 chip and includes an AMD Radeon HD 8550G graphics card. The display is 15.6 inches.

The Oculus Rift Virtual Reality System

AMD showed off a system powered by its "Kaveri" desktop chip and running a version of Oculus' Rift virtual reality game, which includes a pair of goggles that brings the user into the game. Oculus is not yet selling the game to the public; it's recently been released to some developers, according to AMD officials.

AMD in the Signature Book

AMD's R-Series embedded chips—either quad- or dual-core—power iBase's Signature Book. The system also runs a Radeon HD 7000 graphics chip.
