AMD today launched the AMD64 Logo Program to help consumers and IT decision makers identify hardware and software products ready for AMD64, a new class of computing technology that can run current and next-generation software on the same processor at the same time.

AMD64 is a new class of computing that directly follows the evolutionary path of the industry-standard x86 architecture. The AMD Opteron™ processor, for servers and workstations, and the upcoming AMD Athlon™ 64 processor, for desktop and mobile PCs, are the first AMD64 processors. By maintaining compatibility with today’s 32-bit solutions, AMD designed these processors to enable a seamless transition to pervasive 64-bit computing. For the first time, hardware and software developers can create a unified 32- and 64-bit computing infrastructure compatible with the x86 architecture.

AMD also introduced new logos for its AMD64 processors, the AMD Opteron processor for servers and workstations and the upcoming AMD Athlon 64 processor for desktop and mobile computing. Both processors deliver outstanding performance on today’s 32-bit software while running more advanced 64-bit software.
