AMD Accelerator technologies - CPU, GPU and APU architectures to enable scientific computing in the future. Making accelerators accessable through the Heterogenous System Architecture and Open standards.

AMD is developing processor technology in three formats - CPU, GPU, and more recently, APU. And across these areas, AMD is leading a drive toward Heterogeneous Systems Architecture (HSA), an open platform standard that takes advantage of CPU/GPU processor cores as a unified processing engine, which we are making into an open platform standard. This architecture enables many benefits for HPC, including greatly enhanced application performance and significantly low power consumption.
