AMD has announced new AMD Business Class technology for desktop PCs designed for small & medium businesses (SMBs), large enterprises and the public sector.

The new 2009 AMD Business Class Desktop Platform, offered as part of AMD Business Class technology, delivers the benefits of the latest AMD CPUs, chipsets and graphics hardware to business users.
AMD Business Class technology, including platforms configured with AMD Phenom II and AMD Athlon II 45nm processors, AMD 7-Series chipsets and ATI Radeon HD 4000 series graphics processors, offers superior value, advanced visual productivity, and support for essential manageability, security and virtualisation features.
AMD Business Class technology is designed to help manage image changes by offering up to a 24-month planned life-cycle on select CPUs from initial availability, incorporating AMD Virtualization™ (AMD-V) technology, and supporting industry standards like Desktop and Mobile Architecture for System Hardware (DASH) 1.1 for out-of-band manageability and TPM 1.2 for security.
AMD Business Class technology is available now on the HP Compaq 6005 Pro Business PC.
With this refresh, AMD Business Class technology now offers AMD DAS 1.0 capabilities in configurations for desktop PCs.  AMD DAS is a suite of technologies that enable virtualisation and standards-based essential manageability and security with features that don’t lock commercial customers into a single, proprietary technology.
AMD Business Class technology helps drive business productivity with support for Windows Vista or Windows 7 by making it easier to manage multiple monitors, run legacy software in virtual XP Mode and take advantage of new graphic enhancements.
AMD Business Class technology delivers energy efficient features designed to help businesses reduce their carbon footprint, minimise processor power consumption, and help save money on energy costs. The new desktop platform features Cool‘n’Quiet 2.0 technology to help enable reduced system noise and long PC life.
