AMD Radeon Pro Graphics powers Amazon Web Services AppStream 2.0

AMD and Amazon Web Services have teamed up to deliver the next generation of virtualised applications.

AWS’s AppStream 2.0 now provides GPU-accelerated visualised applications, from standard windows productivity apps to robust design and engineering apps, powered by AMD Radeon Pro graphics.

Radeon Pro virtualised GPUs feature Multi-user GPU, the industry’s first and only hardware-based virtualisation technology in GPU, based on SR-IOV (Single Root I/O Virtualisation).

SR-IOV features GPU scheduling logic in hardware, which helps to ensure better quality of service for users. It preserves the data integrity of Virtualised Machines and their application data through hardware-enforced memory isolation logic preventing on VM from being able to access another VMs data. It also exposes all graphics functionality of the GPU to applications allowing for full virtualisation support for not only graphics APIs like DirectX and OpenGL but also GPU compute APIs like OpenCL.

AMD say the result is a highly performant, flexible and secure means of virtualising applications.

AWS is the latest cloud computing company to harness the power of Radeon Pro technology to drive workstation capabilities from the cloud to virtually any connected device, following AMD’s recent collaborations with Google and Alibaba.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
