AMD CEO talks about HD 2.0

CES 2011: Experience, talking computers
AMD's favorite word of the half decade was Fusion and some 5 years after they started talking about it, they actually have chips and they are almost in retail as we speak.

Last night, AMD threw a party for press and partners and invited Joel McHale to make fun of the geeks who attended. Unfortunately, Joel somewhat embarrassed himself with his limited knowledge of technology. One of Joel's guests was AMD CEO, fearsome Dirk Meyer and he talked about why AMD is better.

AMD came up with a claim that 50 percent of the internet runs AMD, which is a bit hard to believe. The most interesting part, however, was the HD 2.0 that AMD talked about.

Dirk also expressed his wish to talk to his PC in the future and he hopes that PC will understand and answer him back, but again there are still a lot of things that needed to happen in order to make that possible.

AMD sees HD 2.0 as HD that runs on everything; its all about experience on waching a HD on your computer. HD 2.0 is something that they come up since just about anything can play HD these days, even mobile phones.

Of course, you need AMD chips to get the better experience as AMD Fusion has DirectX 11 support, and Intel doesn't, that was the key point.

We have our fingers crossed for AMD's Bulldozer as its time to give Intel some decent competition.

Fact, AMD's CEO Dirk Meyer is one bloody smart guy. Thank goodness he is in charge. He will help excel AMD to greatness with none of the ridiculous egotistical bullshit we’ve seen from AMD’s last CEO which caused AMD to fall hard on its aris.
Bulldozer will outperform, Dirk Meyer guarantees this… or the company is in trouble. I believe we will see some strong competition in Price/Performance. Bring on HD 2.0… AMD leads while others follow...

HD 2.0 is fine and dandy, but do we get resolution 2.0 or just the same shitty 1080p? 17" through to 27" same effin 1920*1080. BS.

Looks like AMD is very confident on it's own product!
I had to double check to make sure I as reading fudzilla, I'm amazed to see one AMD article that does not contain the words "nvidia" or "cuda" :o Congratz!

What is wrong with 1080p? What the industry needs to do is perfect 1080p before moving onto something larger. Consumers are not ready to move into that direction yet, just look how long it's taking 1920 x 1080p to get addopted, it's taking a darn long time. We have companies still releasing 720p HDTV's for some stupid reason. Once everybody moves to 1080p, by all means let's start something newer...

It's bloody useless for anything but video.

I'm still on 1280x1024 because horizontal space means nothing to me as I primarily work with text.

I'd kill for a reasonably priced 27" TN screen with 2560x1600 resolution, or 256x1440 if you must, without all the 'professional' dongles and crap.

When 1080p became all the rage we were already at 1920x1200 resolution, since then we've taken a gargantuan step back.

I have a 1920 x 1200 24" monitor but I am running it at 1440 x 900 so I can see to read on it.I just wish they would increase the resolution to 2880 x 1800 so I could downscale without the decrease in sharpness.

My life, and I assume yours, does not revolve around video entertainment, I'd prefer more resolution when working with imagery datasets. A computer monitor should not be designed around HD delivery, HD delivery should simply be one of its features.

I see that all over the net... I guess people just love round numbers. I doubt putting 3 screens together in Eyefinity would make them scream to makers to build them 1:1 monitors because of the screen height.

For people needing vertical space, next time buy pivoted monitors or at least ones that can be mounted on vesa mounts... that's what I recommend to people when I get asked about that specific usage.
