The new chips bring high performance and integrated security with enterprise-class error-correction code memory support, dual- and quad-core variants, and a discrete-class GPU and I/O controller on the same die.

AMD Opteron X-Series APUs running Fedora Linux are an important development for companies looking to transition to x86 APU servers but who don't want to introduce new tools and software platforms into the IT environments.
The new x86 server infrastructure essentially combines Dell hardware with Oracle software.
AMD debuts new silicon, including the world's first 28-nanometer, quad-core x86 SoC APU aimed at small touch-enabled notebooks, tablets and hybrids.
In the short term, ARM chips will continue to have a low-power advantage over processors from x86 chipmakers like Intel and AMD, but eventually this advantage will disappear, according to AMD.
AMD executives asserted that the chipmaker will be the first company to offer both 64-bit ARM and x86 server processors.
Windows 8 gives the x86 competition a fresh shot at the mobile market. With that mind, AMD announced a new Z-Series processor for Windows 8 tablets and hybrids. It will compete with Intel's recently-announced Atom Z2760 along with ARM-based tablets running Windows RT.
Dell had its highest revenue market share ever in the second quarter. Oracle's server sales were thumped. IBM saw soft demand for System x, Power Systems and System z as all three were on tap to be refreshed. HP saw flat x86 ProLiant sales, but Integrity demand fell.
The AMD G-T16R is aimed at very low power, small form factor and cost-sensitive embedded designs that require both x86 compatibility and graphics, such as point-of-sale devices.
AMD's five new processors offer 100 MHz of better performance over their predecessors without any increase in power.
Dell has been shipping servers based on ARM's RISC architecture chips rather than the industry standard x86 format for some time, the company has revealed to ZDNet UK."I have [ARM] designs I can put my hands on today," Dell's president of enterprise solutions, Brad Anderson, told ZDNet UK.
AMD's new Opterons, which have up to 16 cores, hit the market with good support from HP, Cray, AMAX, IBM and Dell. Is that enough to give AMD more than 5 percent of the x86 server market?
Days after Samsung released its first all-in-one PC, Dell has countered with yet another one for its Inspiron lineup. The Inspiron One 2320 uses Intel Core i5 and i7 processors -- unlike the AMD-based Inspiron One 2305 -- built into a 23-inch 1,920x1080-resolution display.
Given how hot it is in many parts of the U.S. this week, the idea of an outdoor concert doesn't sound very pleasant. At least now there is the option to just pretend you're at one using YouTube.
Several recent stories have jump-started rumors that AMD may adopt ARM. This might be the fastest and least-costly way to develop a chip for tablets, but there are lots of reasons why AMD may decide it's safer to stick with x86.
Most of Dell's laptop lineup is Intel-based, but the Inspiron M100 series appears to be saved for its AMD notebook forays. It already sells the Inspiron M101z with an Athlon II processor, and now it appears to be adding its first AMD Fusion portable in the form of the M102z.
The chances of Dell acquiring AMD are likely to be slim, but the management free chipmaker does make a good takeover target.
Rumors are circulating that AMD is up for sale, and that Dell might be interested in purchasing the chip giant.
CES 2011: Alienware updates Aurora gaming desktop, M17x gaming laptop with latest hardware, 3D support
As part of its CES press event, Dell announced refreshes of two Alienware lines that include new hardware from Intel and Nvidia and 3D capabilities.The latest member of the Aurora family of gaming desktops, the first in a MicroATX form factor, will feature new Intel Core i5 and i7 Sandy Bridge processors that will be overclocked and liquid-cooled and can support dual graphics cards (whether in AMD CrossFireX or Nvidia SLI flavor).
Here's copy of the FBI's complaint against four men who had access to vital trade secrets belonging to such tech companies as Apple, Dell, and AMD.
