On Wednesday, during Red Hat Summit 2014, AMD announced a major milestone in the development of its enterprise software ecosystem with the first public demonstration of its second-generation AMD Opteron™ X-Series APU, codenamed “Berlin”, running a Linux environment based on the Fedora Project.
The demonstration featured advancements incorporated in “Project Sumatra” that enable Java applications to take advantage of graphics processing units (GPUs) within AMD server APUs. The combination of Linux and Java on AMD APU platforms provides an ideal platform for server-based multimedia workloads and general purpose GPU compute that will help drive new levels of workload efficiency in the data center.
