Rebranding AMD A-Series APUs for the Component Channel
AMD is excited to announce a strategic shift in the way we brand our APU technology for the component channel. To sharpen the focus on current and future APU technologies, AMD is implementing a component logo methodology specifically for the channel. The new AMD A4, A6 and A8 logo creative aligns to the logos of other successful channel products, such as AMD FX CPUs and AMD Radeon graphics, and the emphasis is on the individual APU component.  Please NOTE: this brand transition is for the desktop component channel only.

The inclusion of these new logos in online assets and marketing collateral will begin worldwide now.

Visit the FPP Portal and ADAM to see the first implementation of
these logos and the new AMD A4 APU assets.
