AMD Radeon Pro Graphics powers Amazon Web Services AppStream 2.0

AMD and Amazon Web Services have teamed up to deliver the next generation of virtualised applications.

AWS’s AppStream 2.0 now provides GPU-accelerated visualised applications, from standard windows productivity apps to robust design and engineering apps, powered by AMD Radeon Pro graphics.

Radeon Pro virtualised GPUs feature Multi-user GPU, the industry’s first and only hardware-based virtualisation technology in GPU, based on SR-IOV (Single Root I/O Virtualisation).

SR-IOV features GPU scheduling logic in hardware, which helps to ensure better quality of service for users. It preserves the data integrity of Virtualised Machines and their application data through hardware-enforced memory isolation logic preventing on VM from being able to access another VMs data. It also exposes all graphics functionality of the GPU to applications allowing for full virtualisation support for not only graphics APIs like DirectX and OpenGL but also GPU compute APIs like OpenCL.

AMD say the result is a highly performant, flexible and secure means of virtualising applications.

AWS is the latest cloud computing company to harness the power of Radeon Pro technology to drive workstation capabilities from the cloud to virtually any connected device, following AMD’s recent collaborations with Google and Alibaba.

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.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
