AMD Fusion Developer Summit Intense But EssentialThe AMD Fusion Developer Summit 2013 takes place from November 11th to 14th rather than in June as in the past. Delegates should also note that the venue has moved from Washington to San Jose, California. But despite the changes, it's business as usual for AMD as it looks for computer researchers and innovators to present their latest findings.

AMD

AMD stands for Advanced Micro Devices. The company specializes in producing computer processors for notebooks, desktops, and servers. It also offers high-quality graphics cards for games.

90% of computer manufacturers use AMD technology in products for home and business use.

Heterogeneous System Architecture

The AMD Fusion Developer Summit will focus on heterogeneous system architecture (HSA). AMD aims to use the HSA approach to the structure and organization of computer systems to boost improvements in:

  • Portability

  • Performance

  • Energy efficiency

  • Programming models

Delegates at the summit can therefore expect many of the presentations to deal with these four areas.

Other Topics

AMD also intends the summit to cover topics such as:

  • Application development tools

  • Audio and multimedia processing

  • Web technologies

  • Cloud computing

  • Big data

  • Innovative designs for user interface

  • Gaming
