AMD say Fusion is ideal for IE9 acceleration

AMD sent KitGuru an email yesterday highlighting the benefits of the Fusion APU, saying it was an ideal partner for Internet Explorer 9 and the new hardware acceleration features.

AMD say:

  • The AMD Fusion APU based systems will make browsing fast and more like a desktop application experience with exceptional speed of response, vivid graphics and outstanding animation quality
  • Combining Internet Explorer 9 with AMD’s computing technologies allows for the next-generation of web to be delivered to the consumer, it means web developers will have the ability to create fast, immersive web experiences

John Taylor, Director of client Product and Software Marketing for AMD says “Better applications, video playback, gaming and general Web page interactivity will define the next-generation web experience. Through combining our award-winning AMD Radeon graphics cards, or AMD Fusion APUs with DirectX11-capable graphics, with Internet Explorer 9 we’re helping users to unlock the full potential of their PC.”

Microsoft have also lended their support to the AMD statement, with Ryan Gavin, senior director of Internet Explorer saying “A fully hardware accelerated browser, taking advantage of Windows and the latest in PC hardware innovations such as the AMD Fusion Family of APUs and discrete HD graphics solutions, means the web as we know it is about to change. GPU-powered HTML5 in Internet Explorer 9 with AMD Fusion chip technology means web developers have the ability to create fast, immersive and increasingly beautiful web experiences.”
