AMD's home-entertainment platform to go live in June

The first PCs based on AMD's Live home-entertainment platform will ship next month.

The first systems based on Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) Live home-entertainment platform will go on sale next month, the chip maker said Wednesday.

AMD's Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processor will feature in PCs manufactured by Acer, Dell's Alienware, Hewlett-Packard, and China's Tsinghua Tongfang, the company said. The new PCs, which are optimized for use with streaming media, will be available beginning in June.

The chip maker is looking to grab market share from Intel, whose Core Duo processor powers many PCs, including models of Lenovo Group's ThinkPad line and Apple Computer's MacBooks.

The AMD Live Entertainment Suite allows a PC to distribute content to other devices via a home network, such as music to a stereo system and video to a television. Some of the applications are available for free download at http://www.amdlive.com.

AMD debuted the Live brand at this year's International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
