AMD is planning to hold its first software developers conference in Bellevue, Washington from June 13 to 16.
Dubbed AMD Fusion Developer Summit, the event will focus on educating developers on the advantages of AMD hardware, mainly its Fusion-series APUs. It is expected to attract about 400 programmers. In addition AMD is expected to announce some details about its upcoming GPUs.
Interestingly, ARM VP Jem Davies will be one of the keynote speakers and this fact is sure to prompt speculation about AMD’s possible partnership with the British chip designer. Talking to Tom’s Hardware, AMD’s John Taylor said that AMD is always looking into new technologies, but he also added that AMD’s stay focused on x86 parts.
AMD Graphics CTO Eric Demers pointed will also address the developers and explain the virtues of AMD’s APU approach, which can be used greatly speed up processing even beyond current APIs.
