AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) announced that the company achieved a number one market share position for thin clients based on its thin-client shipments. According to its unit sales to thin client customers last year, AMD has more than half of that market, with 53 percent market share.
Thin clients, with little or no local storage, often serve as intelligent front-ends for server or cloud-based applications. Thin clients using AMD Embedded G-Series have a strong value proposition for immersive graphics in single- or multi-display configurations in the enterprise. Recent design wins with HP, Fujitsu, and Samsung validate that AMD APUs provide compelling value with horsepower for data movement, encryption/decryption of central server data, and even video encode/decode for video conferencing or multimedia streaming.
"The AMD Embedded G-Series SoC couples high performance compute and graphics capability in a highly integrated low power design," said Scott Aylor, corporate vice president and general manager, AMD Enterprise Solutions. "These processors provide compelling performance per dollar per watt, strong security, sophisticated power management, and superior graphics performance. The product lineup includes an unparalleled range of pin- and software-compatible offerings, helping to address multiple needs of our customers."
AMD G-Series SOC Ideal for Thin Client Applications
AMD thin client solutions continue to gain market adoption because of the move to cloud-based computing. Increasingly, thin clients are also being used for more complex and high performance tasks. This is especially true for devices incorporating x86 CPUs and sophisticated graphics. The surge of innovation in the desktop virtualization market has created new opportunities for powerful thin clients that are now capable of executing demanding tasks including computer-aided design and 3D modeling. Customers are also using AMD thin client solutions in financial and government services, call centers, kiosks, and hospitals, "smart" monitors and other multi-user, virtualized installations.
The AMD G-Series SoC also features enhanced security for enterprise IT operations, enabling security between the thin client and the server, and allowing only software approved by an enterprise's IT organization to run on the thin client device. It also supports enhanced power management technology to help manage energy costs and environmental impact across large deployments.
