Hyderabad, Jan 4 (UNI) The Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), a leading global provider of innovative processing solutions in computing, graphics and consumer electronic markets, today opened its second Research and Design (R and D) facility in the city.
Inaugurating the centre here, AMD President and Chief Operating Officer Dirk Meyer said the Company was committed to designing and building platforms that deliver more computing powers using less energy and less space.
He said the AMD was one of the 11 founding members of the 'Green Grid,' a global consortium dedicated to developing and promoting energy efficiency for data centres and information services.
He said the Company was leading the way in crucial computing technologies like performance-per-watt, virtualization, Direct Connect Architecture and 64-bit and multi-core computing.
He said the AMD combines superior computing and graphics processing to create powerful visual experiences on everything from PCs to digital televisions to handheld devices.
He said India's talented pool of engineering resourcs makes it one of the most important technology centres in the world. ''The Company's fourth R and D facility in India and second in Hyderabad was recognition of the calibre of talent and design expertise that resides within the country,'' he said.
Mr Meyer said the Company, which set up its operations in March 2001, had been able to successfully establish its business in a short span of six years.
