AMD, No. 1 in Thin Client Computing Globally, Wins With New Scalable, Low-Power Solution
SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/17/15 --
AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) today announced that Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. selected the AMD Embedded G-Series SoC (system on chip) for a new line of all-in-one cloud monitors featuring integrated thin client technology. The Samsung 21.5-inch TC222W and 23.6-inch TC242W are powered by AMD Embedded G-Series SoCs that couple high-performance compute and graphics capability in a highly integrated, low power design. The AMD SoC improves data transfer rates and saves space on the motherboard, which makes it a perfect fit for the compact form factors required by thin clients.
"Thin client is a key market for AMD Embedded Solutions and we're thrilled that Samsung has chosen to partner with us for their newest line of products," said Scott Aylor, vice president and general manager, Embedded Solutions, AMD. "The collaboration with Samsung builds on the number one position AMD holds in a market that continues to grow, becoming more and more prevalent in commercial installations that serve a broad range of markets."
Planned availability starting in Q3 2015, the Windows®-supported Samsung cloud monitors will provide customers with expanded choice, capability and configuration flexibility. Complete with Samsung's professional-grade display panel, the cloud monitors will create a superior user experience through easy connectivity and high-quality reliability. As a superior option for effective desktop virtualization, Samsung's thin-client monitors will also enable improved productivity and optimized end-to-end performance.
