AMD and Qualcomm Collaborate to Optimize FastConnect Connectivity Solutions for AMD Ryzen Processors

AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) and Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ: QCOM), today announced a collaboration to optimize the Qualcomm® FastConnect™ connectivity system for computing platforms based on AMD Ryzen™ processor, starting with AMD Ryzen™ PRO 6000 series processors and Qualcomm® FastConnect™ 6900 system. including advanced wireless capabilities enabled with Windows 11.

Working with Microsoft, next-generation Windows 11 PCs, such as the Lenovo ThinkPad Z series and HP EliteBook 805 series, can harness the full potential of Windows 11 Wi-Fi Dual Station via Qualcomm® 4-Stream Dual Band Simultaneous. Multiple Wi-Fi bands outperform traditional single-band connections for enhanced video conferencing experiences, reduced latency, and improved connection robustness. By taking advantage of the 6 GHz band, next-generation laptop users can take full advantage of its bandwidth and speed improvements without competing with non-6E devices.

For IT administrators, the AMD manageability processor[i] now available in Ryzen PRO 6000 systems is a solution that enables remote management of commercial AMD platforms. When paired with the FastConnect 6900, this solution enables wireless management with support for over 32 widely used Open Standard-Based (DASH) profiles. Together, the AMD Manageability processor and FastConnect 6900 unlock enhanced capabilities to enable IT to manage systems.

“Remote management of out-of-band Wi-Fi is an important tool for enterprise IT managers to diagnose and resolve issues, even when the operating system is down,” said Jason Banta, CVP and General Manager, OEM Client Computing, AMD. “AMD Ryzen™ PRO 6000 Series processors with FastConnect 6900 enable next-generation business laptops to have the processing and connectivity tools needed to perform in modern environments, delivering enterprise-grade remote manageability to users in the new location. hybrid work.

“Our collaboration with AMD reflects Qualcomm Technologies’ commitment to the mobile computing space. By optimizing FastConnect 6900 for platforms powered by AMD Ryzen 6000 Series processors, we are providing secure Wi-Fi remote management to AMD enterprise customers,” said Dino Bekis, Vice President and General Manager, Mobile Compute and Connectivity, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “This represents the first step in our relationship to bring superior wireless connectivity to AMD’s mobile computing roadmap.”

Industry support

“At HP, we are committed to creating solutions that provide customers with the innovation choices essential to thrive in today’s hybrid work environments,” said Gagan Singh, vice president, product management and experiences. from the commercial portfolio, HP Inc. “The AMD Ryzen™ PRO 6000 Series processors deliver high performance, battery life, and the remote management features our customers expect, while the latest AMD Ryzen processors PRO with FastConnect 6900 offer the option of advanced connectivity.

“Our enterprise customers demand the advanced manageability and superior Wi-Fi connectivity of AMD Ryzen™ PRO 6000 Series processors with the FastConnect 6900 offering,” said Tom Butler, executive director, IDG Commercial Portfolio at Lenovo. “The 1200 MHz Wi-Fi 6E extension of the new 6 GHz spectrum meets the demand for reliable two-way data traffic such as video calls, collaboration tools like Microsoft Teams and remote management to ensure productivity sustained for the global workforce facing congestion from streaming, gaming and homeschooling.

Together with our OEM suppliers, AMD and Qualcomm Technologies are committed to delivering industry-leading business platforms that meet the emerging needs of business users and IT departments.
